SASKATOON, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - The Board of Directors of PrimeWest Mortgage Investment Corporation ("PrimeWest") announce that Alon (Al) Zack, President and CEO of PrimeWest, has given notice to the Board that later this year he will be leaving PrimeWest to pursue other business opportunities. The Board has begun the search for a new CEO, and Mr. Zack will be available to offer advice and support during the transition to a new CEO, which will occur by no later than June 30, 2011.

Board Chair Tom Archibald stated that "Mr. Zack has made a very valuable contribution to PrimeWest over the past four years, and we appreciate all he has been able to accomplish.  During the transition, Al will continue to work with the Board to help grow the organization and focus on our efficiencies.  The Board will look forward to working with the new President and CEO to further develop and implement our strategic goals."
