“Nevada needs a Treasurer who not only has the passion and energy to take on Nevada's problems but also the business experience to get the job done. Manny Kess is the right man for the job.”.
Former Congressman Cresent Hardy
“Manny Kess is a bright, young, dynamic entrepreneur whose resume speaks for itself. His energy and perspective are refreshing, and I know no one will out work him. Once elected, Manny will diligently and competently pursue his duties and responsibilities as an elected leader."
-Former Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison
Manny Kess has been a successful CEO and investor for two decades and understands the challenges of making payroll, paying vendors on time, and turning a profit. He is running for State Treasurer to revive the small business community that has been destroyed by burdensome regulations and will fight to make sure Nevada has a real plan to recover from the current economic shutdown that has plagued the state and destroyed people’s livelihoods in the process.
A decade ago, Manny moved to Nevada and made it his home. Like many before him, Kess benefited greatly from the low cost of living, lack of a state income tax, and many of the simple opportunities Nevada provides. Through hard work, determination, and entrepreneurial spirit, Kess grew his company to over six million dollars in annual revenue. His success story has since been recognized by multiple print, online, and radio publications, including Forbes Magazine. He is now an investor in several businesses, including a restaurant, a firearms manufacturer, high end interior design, and sports nutrition, and currently serves as CEO of one of the top-rated and successful hospitality companies based in Las Vegas.
Like a lot of Nevadans Kess was challenged through the pandemic last year. Like most business owners, Kess was disappointed by the lack of transparency and accountability in regard to the decisions that were forced upon families and business owners across the state. This led Kess to begin asking questions about state government and its lack of transparency, and drove him to take action and decide to run for Nevada State Treasurer.
