Connect First Credit Union appoints former ATB exec as new COO
Canada’s Connect First Credit Union has announced the appointment of Wellington Holbrook as its chief operating officer.
Holbrook stepped down as chief transformation officer at ATB Financial back in January. He left the state-owned financial services provider after nine years at the firm.
At the time he said that he would not be “going far”.
Alberta-based Connect First CU is a full-service financial institution with over $6 billion in assets under administration and 1280,000 members.
According to CEO Paul Kelly, Wellington joined the firm at the beginning of March, “just as COVID-19 was hitting Alberta.”
The credit union is in the process of updating all of its systems and looking at supporting members with “high quality financial advice.”
