LAS VEGAS – American Banker magazine’s “Most Powerful Women in Banking” list, now in its 16th year, once again recognized Zions Bancorporation for having one of the top teams in the nation. The winning team includes Nevada State Bank’s Shannon Petersen, executive vice president and corporate banking manager. This is the second year in a row Petersen has been named to this elite list. Zions Bancorporation is the parent company of Nevada State Bank.
Petersen is executive vice president and corporate banking manager for Nevada State Bank and is responsible for all aspects of corporate and commercial banking throughout the state. She has been with the bank since 2001 and in 2012, was the first woman selected to join the executive management team.
The highlight of the Women in Banking program is rankings of the “25 Most Powerful Women in Banking” and the “25 Most Powerful Women in Finance.” In addition, American Banker identifies “25 Women to Watch” and recognizes “Top Teams in Banking” to honor companies with strong female representation in their senior ranks.
“I’m proud that Shannon is again being recognized as a strong leader in the banking industry,” said Terry Shirey, president and CEO at Nevada State Bank. “She sets a wonderful example for her team and the hundreds of women finding success here at Nevada State Bank. Shannon shows a clear commitment and leadership for her team, our clients, and the communities we serve.”
Petersen and other Zions Bancorporation colleagues were honored at an awards ceremony hosted by American Banker on Oct. 3 in New York City.
