Clark County Credit Union (CCCU) recently announced that two key positions have changed in the commercial lending department. Josh Haldeman was promoted from Vice President of Commercial Lending to Chief Lending Officer and Daniel Reese will take over the position of Vice President of Commercial Lending.
“The newly created C-level position in lending shows the credit union’s growth in the commercial lending and our commitment to providing even more businesses with the financing they need to
expand,” said Matt Kershaw, CEO of CCCU. Haldeman has been growing and developing a commercial and industrial lending culture within the credit union. In his new position, he will continue to create new and competitive lending programs for CCCU members.
Haldeman spent his whole life in Las Vegas, obtaining a degree in Marketing from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He is actively involved with the youth of the community through the Boy Scouts of America as well as being a mentor through the CCSD school and community partnership program.
Reese will maintain CCCU’s commercial lending portfolio, listening to members’ needs and answering their questions about commercial credit and lending. He says CCCU is known for their great customer service and personal touch and he is excited to get to work helping the members.
CCCU’s Fifth Annual National Nurses Week Grand Prize Winners Announced
As Clark County’s only state-chartered credit union for medical professionals, Clark County Credit Union (CCCU) recently announced the winners of its fifth annual Nurses Week prize drawing.
The 2018 CCCU Nurses Week grand prize awards went to nurse Nicole Parker and nursing student Allyzza May Cortez.
Parker is a recovery room nurse with St. Rose Hospitals and she won a $1,000 gift card, which she used to take her family on vacation. She has been a nurse for 12 years and said being a nurse is awesome, interesting, and fun, though sometimes sad. She said, “I've wanted to be a nurse since I was about 10 years old. I like that I have many options in nursing - I can specialize in one area or learn multiple areas and help whenever needed.”
Cortez is a nursing student at the University of Portland’s School of Nursing. She wants to become a nurse so she can help and support others, leaving a legacy of one who helped many in need. She said she is grateful for the $500 prize money and will be using it to help buy her college anatomy books and help pay for travel back home to Las Vegas.
Matt Kershaw, Chief Executive Officer of CCCU was happy to recognize our local nurses. “The nurses in our community witness people at the best and worse moments of their lives,” said Kershaw. “CCCU is proud to serve them and the rest of the medical community in Clark County.”
On June 17 two teams from the UNLV Lee Business School department of accounting competed in the final round of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) annual National Student Case Competition in Indianapolis, Indiana. UNLV competed against teams from Texas State and Wright State, with one of the two teams from UNLV ultimately winning the competition.
The Student Case Competition gives students an opportunity to analyze a relevant case study and develop a solution. Teams submit videos to present their case analysis and from there the finalists present to an audience at the IMA’s Annual Conference and Expo. This year 25 teams from universities across the nation participated in the initial round of the competition. The four finalist teams each received $3,000 and the winning team received an additional $2,000 grand prize. The two UNLV teams won a combined total of $8,000.
