TORONTO, Feb. 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Following is a statement by Zool Samji, Chairman of the Board, Wealth One Bank of Canada 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Rubina Havlin as the President & Chief Executive Officer of Wealth One Bank of Canada.  

Ms. Havlin brings over 20 years of domestic and international banking experience  and is the former CEO of Bank of America, Canada Bank.  Her leadership has included executive roles at Scotiabank and National Bank of Canada.  She is a founding member of the Board of Directors of Wealth One Bank and has a deep knowledge of the bank and its mission.  Her leadership as CEO will guide the bank to the next level of business success. 

Charles Lambert, the outgoing President & CEO, has provided the leadership and driving force that ensured an historic and highly successful launch for our bank last year.  On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, and the dedicated men and women of Wealth One Bank, I thank Charles for his leadership and wish him continued success.

We have a unique and unprecedented mission as Canada's first ever federally-chartered Schedule 1 bank with a special focus on our country's dynamic Chinese Canadian community, while serving all Canadians.  We have spent the past year establishing a solid foundation.  With today's announcement, we start building on that foundation with a commitment to growing the bank with innovative and competitive products and services.

Wealth One is a Canadian Bank committed to providing great customer service and products to all Canadians with a focus on the Chinese Canadian community.
