Kellerman moved to southern Nevada from Ohio in July 2004 to join Business Bank as one of its top executives. Prior, Kellerman worked for Second Bancorp in Warren for 23 years. He served on a number of nonprofit boards, including the Trumbull County United Way, Trumbull Memorial Hospital Foundation, Howland Township Zoning Commission.
''We are very pleased to have Dave join our board and provide us with the financial expertise he has both as an experienced banker and certified public accountant,'' said Dale Andreason, state director of March of Dimes Nevada Chapter. ''Dave clearly has the skill sets to help us move this organization forward and take our mission to the next level, which is to find the answers to preterm birth.''
''After considering several opportunities here in the West, my wife and I decided Las Vegas was the place for us to become involved both professionally and philanthropically,'' Kellerman said. ''While Business Bank presented the best situation for me and my banking career, March of Dimes provided the ideal situation for me to get involved and give back to the community. I'm thoroughly impressed with this nonprofit organization.''
Kellerman added that as he becomes more familiar with the Las Vegas community and its most pressing needs, he will look to get more involved in the philanthropic efforts of Business Bank and the community. The majority of the bank's executive and senior managements teams serve on at least one nonprofit board. Some serve on two or three.
The four main areas of the bank's philanthropic outreach include education, health and human services, community development, and arts and culture. Business Bank is also a member of the Business Community Investment Council in Las Vegas.
