I have been employed with Eagle River Credit Union since July 2013. Following its merger with Leading Edge Credit Union, we have formed the Atlantic Edge Credit Union. I joined as Director Finance and Credit Union Operations, and have since held several roles at senior management level. As such, have been involved in decision making from “soup to nuts”, i.e. from Strategic Discussions down to Operational decision making. I have been employed in the retail banking environment for the majority of my working life. Over my career, I have held many roles from front-line operations, Regulatory reporting, Management and Financial accounting to being involved in Strategic Decision Making. Additionally, I have worked in the airline industry, retail manufacturing and sales in accounting related roles. I hold three finance related designations-FCCA – Fellow of Association of Chartered Certified Accountant; CPA/CGA – Chartered Professional Accountants; MSc – Masters of Science in Finance (Investment Banking and Securities) with merit (with University of Wales). I have also participated in several leadership workshops and numerous other training courses.
