She has over 28 years of experience in the banking industry, including 25 years in management and 18 years in a regional leadership role.

“It is an incredible honor to be selected for this Board and to continue to make an impact within the banking industry,” said Watkins. “I am incredibly grateful and touched for the appointment and the opportunities that accompany it, especially in highlighting Lexicon Bank and the Nevada business community behind it. “

Since joining Lexicon Bank, Watkins has made a significant contribution to the continued growth and success of the Bank, including leading efforts to support small businesses and organizations throughout Nevada. As President and CEO, Stacy oversees all facets of the Lexicon Bank team, client services, operations, business lending initiatives, further develops business and community partnerships and helps strengthen the overall community awareness. Driven by her sense of service and the Bank’s commitment to community prosperity, Stacy presented the Lexicon Bank Community Spotlight program, a monthly initiative that highlights local nonprofits making a difference in the community of Southern Nevada and connects them with banking partners and clients to help them support their missions.

Ms. Watkins is a past Chair of the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada and is currently Co-Chair of the Family Gifts Division. She is also proud to be a member of the NV Corporate Giving Foundation, the Vegas Chamber Executive Women’s Council, the Vegas Chamber President’s Club and the Nevada Bankers Association.
