LAS VEGAS, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Credit One Bank, one of the largest and fastest growing credit card issuers in the United States, held a groundbreaking ceremony today for its new headquarters at 6801 South Cimarron Road, Las Vegas. Notable participants included Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chairman; Annalyn Bo Carrillo, Las Vegas Office Manager for Governor Brian Sandoval; Kevin Burke, President and CEO of Burke Construction Group; and several community leaders and Credit One Bank representatives, including President and CEO Robert DeJong.
"The future of Credit One Bank has never looked better," DeJong said. "This building is not going to make Credit One Bank great, or better. Our people will. This new building and the property it's built on will provide a platform where Credit One Bank will grow right here in Las Vegas."
Scheduled to be operational by the end of 2017, the new headquarters can accommodate up to 500 new jobs, including technical, analytical and marketing positions, to support Credit One Bank's growing credit card business over the next few years. Credit One Bank offers a range of full spectrum credit card products and is among the top 10 largest Visa credit card issuers in the United States.
"For nearly 20 years, Credit One Bank has been contributing to our economy, and this new facility will lead to 500 permanent new jobs," Commission Chairman Sisolak said. "That's 500 families who will be able to maintain their quality of life as a result of the investment they have made in this community."
Sisolak also declared December 15, 2016, Credit One Bank Day in Clark County.
The 152,000-square-foot building will sit on 26 acres just south of I-215 between Durango Drive and Buffalo Drive, seven miles from Credit One Bank's existing location, and will be the first true four-story, concrete tilt up office building in Southern Nevada. Representatives from Grand Canyon Development Partners, who is managing the construction; Gensler, the architect for the project; and Burke Construction Group, Inc., who is the general contractor, were also present for the groundbreaking.
"The building will be constructed with concrete tilt panels. There isn't another project like that that's ever been constructed in Southern Nevada," Burke said. "We're looking forward to that challenge that lies ahead."
The new headquarters will create opportunities for Credit One Bank to further increase its support of the Las Vegas community. Credit One Bank's history of giving back includes the donation of significant grants and employee service hours. The company has committed more than $4 million to support the affordable housing needs of Clark County's low to moderate income residents.
