Chief Executive Officer

Alterna Savings and its subsidiary, Alterna Bank, are on the move. Building on its traditional credit union values and solid foundation of 24 branches in Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, Pembroke and North Bay, Alterna is growing its products, its markets, and its membership - currently 150,000 and rising. Reaching outward from its Ontario base, Alterna has a dream: To be the leader of co-operative financial services.

Alterna provides its members with an array of financial services, from mortgages, personal loans and automated banking to wealth management, ethical investments and commercial banking for small and medium size enterprises. Beyond financial services, Alterna provides its members with a sense of community: of helping each other, and of social responsibility. For a more complete understanding of Alterna, please visit its website at www.alterna.ca

As Chief Executive Officer, you will inspire, motivate and develop your team as it embraces the expanded capabilities and potential of Alterna. In this fast-forward role, your mandate will be to direct the overall business affairs of Alterna in pursuit of its mission, vision, and values. You will champion fresh thinking that will excite and attract members. You will develop and retain a highly competent, professional and caring staff that is focused on serving members.

As a well-qualified candidate for this position, you have already acquired substantial executive experience in a retail financial services operation, most likely by leading an independent business unit. You have demonstrated the ability to think strategically, communicate compellingly and lead collaboratively. Client-oriented by nature, you have an instinct for growing brand and attracting new members. You know how to balance the pursuit of both financial and social goals, and in your personal life, you personify the values that are at the heart of credit union success. With Alterna, you will split your time between Toronto and Ottawa as you spur the continued evolution of this major Canadian credit union.
