With assets of over $680 million, NLCU is the largest credit union in Newfoundland and one of the largest in Atlantic Canada. Over 20,000 members rely on NLCU’s 140 staff for expertise in how to help them prosper.
Due to the retirement of the long-standing incumbent, NLCU is seeking its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Reporting to NLCU’s Board of Directors, as CEO you are responsible for the strategic leadership and management of the credit union. Through your strong vision for the future, you will drive NLCU through sustainable business development and growth while fostering a corporate culture that is agile, growth-oriented and embodies NLCU’s vision, mission, values, and value proposition. You will lead and develop a high-performance senior management team who work collaboratively to turn strategy into action to achieve short- and long-term business goals. As the public face of NLCU, you will maintain positive relationships with NLCU’s regulator, business community, partners, associations, government and the communities NLCU serves. The CEO also acts as Corporate Treasurer and Chairperson of the NLCU Charitable Foundation Corporation.
As an ideal candidate you are a seasoned, trusted, and forward-looking financial industry leader with a proven record of making sound business decisions that have achieved organizational growth and improvements to member service. Extremely visible and engaging both internally and externally, people value you for your energy, authenticity, positivity and strong negotiation and influencing skills. You are an inspiring people leader who is naturally inclusive, passionate about coaching and mentorship, and empowers staff to be all they can be in pursuit of a culture of innovation, accountability and performance excellence. NLCU will benefit from your comfort and experience with the impacts of new technology and its effect on staff and members. Your sound governance knowledge and previous experience reporting to, or serving on, a board of directors will be of great value, as will your skill in identifying opportunities for efficiency, partnership and growth. Previous experience working within the credit union system is an asset.
