Update from CEO Search Committee

September 13, 2018 – If the number of applicants who applied for the Kindred CEO position is any indication, then our credit union has quite the appealing reputation! The applicants drawn to us come from diverse backgrounds, including: credit unions, banks, insurance, business; the public and private sectors; experience in Ontario, British Columbia, and even countries across the globe.

All applications were tested through the CEO skills matrix to screen the candidate pool down to 25. The matrix had been developed by the CEO Search Committee, a sub-committee of the Board of Directors, and endorsed by the Board. It was designed to assess fit and qualifications, including: alignment with Kindred’s values and purpose, leadership, work experience, academic credentials, and other important characteristics and background.

After individually reviewing the 25 resumes, the Search Committee met on August 2 to further reduce the potential candidate list with a preference for candidates with credit union/financial services experience.
Earlier this month, the Search Committee conducted first interviews. A second round of interviews is expected to take place at the end of the month with work by the Search Committee continuing in October. Board deliberation will be needed prior to any offer being finalized.

We’ve been very pleased with the level of interest in Kindred and impressed with the high calibre of candidates we have reviewed. We look forward to introducing our new CEO. In the meantime, Brent continues with his steady hand and leadership as CEO of Kindred to the end of 2018.

Thank you for your continued interest and support during this time of waiting and anticipation.

Cooperatively yours,

John Wiebe
Chair, CEO Search Committee
Kindred Credit Union
