Mike Campion, longtime resident of Southern Nevada and Director of Branches for a local credit union, is running for Clark County Commissioner, District-F. Mike has worked in the banking/financial services industry for nearly 30 years, getting his start in the early 90s.
Thirty years ago, NationsBank, was one of the largest banking corporations in the country. They would acquire Bank of America and adopt the name. So, Mike Campion’s career launching pad turned out to be a B-of-A, 9-month management program which he was selected to attend in 1995. Since graduating from the program, he’s filled multiple industry executive positions including, assistant vice president at BBVA, a global financial services company based in Spain, and as a vice president at First Bank. He’s been selected his credit union’s Manager of the Year, two out of the last three years.
A Strong History
Campion has honed significant leadership and problem-solving skills during his time in the financial industry. He’s served on several commercial loan committees, worked on policies and procedures, and in operations. He’s learned first-hand about bureaucracy, and the real, grass roots issues businesses grapple with. Mike is a “people person,” and his affable demeanor and genuine desire to help have allowed him to forge relationships with many business owners in the region. Campion was instrumental in his credit union’s outreach during the worst of the pandemic. He led the local effort to provide guidance and resources, including the SBA backed paycheck protection program.
When SBA loans stalled during the process, it was Mike who interceded on behalf of the local businesses. Those efforts made him a sought-after expert on financial matters by local print and television media.
Mike Campion is a longtime champion of financial literacy. He works with Clark High School Academy of Finance and volunteers with the Center for Financial Empowerment, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing financial literacy to underserved high school students.
Mike’s knowledge and experience in the financial industry will help him bring a pro-business, pro-growth approach to the Commission. His philosophy is succinct.
“I believe that government should work to find a way, NOT get in the way”.
Campion will support commercial growth in District-F cities that would make Clark County a leader in distribution. Safe neighborhoods, safe schools, and homelessness are among the many pressing issues he is hoping to address. Campion is not a career politician; he believes the system can work when common sense and common decency find common ground.
Mike Campion is a native of Houston, Texas. He’s lived in District-F for ten years. He and his wife Melissa have five daughters and two grandchildren.
