Reno – Jamie Ventura, operations officer with First Independent Bank will be among those honored during the Salute to Women of Achievement luncheon on May 26, 2016.
The luncheon, presented by the Nevada Women’s Fund, celebrates the determination and dedication of women in our community, as well as the businesses that support them.
Ventura, who was born and raised in Reno, has been with First Independent Bank for more than 10 years. As operations officer of the bank’s Sparks Industrial Branch, Ventura is responsible for supervising all staff activities and branch operations, as well as strict compliance with all banking policies and procedures. Ventura excels at providing outstanding customer service and ensuring all customers receive the best experience every time. Ventura’s service, career and personal achievements are among the reasons she was selected as honoree by First Independent Bank, a division of Western Alliance Bank.
Since 1983, Nevada Women’s Fund has made a huge impact on women’s lives, raising and awarding $6.9 million in local funding to support local education scholarships to individual women, and financial grants to local nonprofits for needed family services. One hundred percent of the funds raised from the Salute to Women of Achievement stay in the Truckee Meadows.
The luncheon will take place at the Grand Sierra Resort from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The keynote speaker is Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit with a mission to close the gender gap in technology.
