EDMONTON, March 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Chris Turchansky has been named the new President of ATB Investor Services. Turchansky moves into the president's role after serving the organization for 10 years in various positions, most recently leading the Private Counsel, Solutions and Mass Market teams.
"In my 10 years with ATB Investor Services, I've had a chance to work with some amazing people who shared the outrageous belief we could be different than other wealth management firms and make a positive impact in the lives of our clients," says Turchansky.
"The opportunity to lead the team during our next chapter is extremely exciting."
ATB Investor Services is the wealth management area of expertise in ATB Financial, the largest Alberta-based financial institution. ATB Investor Services' subsidiaries, ATB Securities Inc. and ATB Investment Management Inc., manage over $13 billion in assets across 242 Alberta communities. This past November, ATB Investment Management Inc., fund manager of the Compass Portfolio Series, was awarded its third consecutive prestigious Lipper Fund Award in the category of Best Mixed Asset Fund Group.
ATB Financial President & CEO Dave Mowat was pleased that a wide search for a new ATB Investor Services leader ended at home.
"On top of his expertise in the wealth management business, Chris is just a great guy, quick to laugh, ready to share a story or two, and has a deep connection to his small town Alberta roots," says Mowat of the Devon-raised Turchansky.
"I have every confidence Chris and his team will meet their goal of becoming the number one wealth management firm for Albertans."
Turchansky's credentials include a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta, an MBA from Athabasca University and Certified Financial Analyst and Accredited Investment Fiduciary designations. He has 18 years of experience in wealth management.
