Beers grew up in Nevada, attending the full range of public education offerings (Cashman, Clark, CSN, UNR, UNLV) before building and selling two businesses, both based around Treasury functions in the private, public and non-profit sectors. He is currently the elected Treasurer of the Old Spanish Trail Association, a non-profit supported by the National Park Service to promote the Old Spanish Trail, the only National Trail that goes through Las Vegas. In the past, he has been elected Treasurer for the Nevada Republican Party, Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation, Southern Nevada Clean Communities, and a host of other organizations.
Beers is the only Republican in the race who brings state government experience, the integrity of the CPA profession, and three separate jobs on his resume where success rested on his marketing strategies. With this marketing experience, and as an alumni of UNR and UNLV, Beers makes the perfect spokesperson for the education savings programs that the Treasurer manages for the Nevada Legislature.
Bob has been married to Sarah for 35 years. Their children are grown but they now have a granddaughter to dote on.
Beers plays the bass most recently, but has played the banjo steady for most of the past ten years. He is a lifelong musician.
