LAS VEGAS – Maria Montelongo recently was promoted to Market Manager for Nevada State Bank’s retail operations in Southern Nevada.

Montelongo joined Nevada State Bank as a teller in 2009 and has been promoted to roles including personal banker, branch customer service manager, branch management trainee and branch manager of the Centennial Hills branch before taking on her current position.
