The CEO is accountable for the ongoing growth and sustainability of the organization as well as the execution of connectFirst’s current strategic direction centered on exceptional member experience. In the last 12 months the foundational enablers of this strategy have been implemented via exceptional efforts across all levels of employees. These strategy foundations include the replacement of four divergent banking systems with one consistent front and back-end banking system, a corporate wide reorganization redesigned to align lines of business instead of geographic divisions and the launch of the unified connectFirst brand replacing the past First Calgary, Legacy, Mountain View and Chinook regional brands.
