Enterprise Bank & Trust Boosts Las Vegas Presence With New Hires, Promotion

Enterprise Bank & Trust, the banking subsidiary of Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ: EFSC), has hired three new associates and announced an internal promotion to boost its presence in Las Vegas, NV. 

David Navarro, Market President, has been hired to lead Enterprise’s growth efforts in Las Vegas. Navarro is an experienced commercial banker in the Las Vegas area. He previously served as Senior Vice President and Director of Commercial Banking at Pacific Premier Bank. 

Two other banking veterans, Bernard Bermudez and JC Cudiamat, have also joined Navarro’s team at Enterprise. Cudiamat, SVP, Relationship Manager, has more than 20 years of sales management experience in small business and commercial loans, treasury services and card products. Bermudez, SVP, Relationship Manager, has more than 30 years experience in commercial banking. As a trusted financial advisor, he will continue to deliver financial services to commercial and nonprofit clients in the region. 

Enterprise entered the Las Vegas market in 2020 with the acquisition of Seacoast Commerce Banc Holdings, the parent company of Seacoast Commerce Bank. The acquisition added seven branch locations to Enterprise’s footprint, including the branch at 8311 W. Sunset Rd. in Las Vegas. 

As part of its investment in the Las Vegas market, Enterprise has named veteran Jeff Friesen as President of the Southwestern Region. He was formerly President of the Arizona market for Enterprise. In his new expanded role, Friesen is responsible for Arizona, Albuquerque, NM, and Enterprise’s growing presence in Las Vegas. 

“Las Vegas is a strong, attractive commercial banking market. The business growth in the region is impressive,” says Enterprise Bank & Trust President Scott Goodman. “Combining proven leadership with a new team of highly experienced local banking leaders presents great opportunities for growth in the area.”
