Almost two years after the passing of long-time CEO Mike Tarr, Northern Savings Credit Union announced today it had found a new president and CEO.
Ken Doleman, who has over 30 years of experience in financial services, will take over from acting president and CEO Bill Nicholls on July 1, 2012. Dolemanhas spent the last 12 years as CEO of Swan Valley Credit Union in Swan River Manitoba after a career in management at one of Canada’s chartered banks.
“Northern Savings is clearly the premier financial services provider in the northwest region, uniquely positioned to strengthen northwest BC communities and members,” said Doleman following the appointment.
“I look forward to extending my skills and competencies at Northern Savings and working closely with the executive team to provide contributions to a strong and compelling future for Northern Savings, its members and the communities it serves.”
Board chair Nirmal Parmar says the board of directors is also happy to have Doleman coming on board.
“We are certain that Ken’s long history of involvement in local communities alongside his national and international co-operative experiences will immensely benefit the future growth of Northern Savings and our northwest communities,” he said.
Doleman and his family will be moving to Prince Rupert, where the head office of Northern Savings is located, and will oversee other branches in Masset, Queen Charlotte and Terrace.
