ROGER KADZ Retires from Nevada State Development
“For me, it’s always been about maintaining relationships,” Roger says. “Meet and greet your clients. Look them in the eye. Do a lot of listening. Listen to their needs, and be a resource to help them achieve their goals.”
“From my end, it’s been gratifying to work with such a great cross section of business owners, from plumbers to restaurateurs, as well as electricians, heating contractors, a sign shop, woodworks, several architects, and the list goes on,” says Roger. “Another fun thing for me, being based in the northern section of the state, was establishing contacts out in the rural counties — the Winnemucca and Elko regions in particular. We’ve done quite a few deals in those areas.”
“The big thing that is going on in the Reno area and Northern Nevada, of course, is all the energy generated from the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, the major announcement that the Tesla Gigafactory will be located there, and the huge Switch data center campus,” says Roger. “We’re eagerly anticipating several more big announcements that could be coming out any day now. All of this activity serves to spur business and economic development in the region, which is a crucial part of our mission at Nevada State Development Corporation.”
Before coming on board with NSDC, Kadz served as senior vice president with Plumas Bank and as senior vice president with First National Bank of Nevada. He also had experience with First Interstate Bank of Nevada, Bank of the West, Nevada Security Bank and Comstock Bank.
Kadz, earned a B.A. at University of Redlands and attended UCLA for income property analysis and appraisal courses, was based in Las Vegas from 1987 to 1990 before moving to Reno.
