Update From Our Interim CEO & CFO, Greg Peacock

For up to date information please visit our COVID-19 Action Plan.

Dear Members,

We wanted to provide an update on the actions TCU Financial Group is taking to safeguard the health and well-being of our members, our employees and their families during this time. Take confidence in knowing that we are updating our approach in real-time to stay on top of the ever-changing situation, so continue to check our website for the latest updates.

Our Leadership Team has taken a number of supportive measures to look after the needs of our members, our staff and their families.

  1. Centralizing Branch Locations in Saskatoon and Regina
    In order to optimize service levels, effective Thursday, March 19, we will be temporarily closing our Arlington and Rochdale branches in order to centralize operations in both Saskatoon and Regina respectively. This allows us to continue serving our members while allowing for staffing absences and minimizing our public-facing footprint in alignment with Saskatchewan Health Authority guidelines for social distancing.

    All employees from the Arlington and Rochdale branches will temporarily be relocating to the two branches listed below, or alternatively will be working from home. We will assess the timing of this in the days ahead. ATMs at all locations will remain in operation.

    Saskatoon Ludlow Branch
    307 Ludlow Street, Saskatoon, SK S7S 1N6.
    Mon-Fri: 9:30am to 5:00pm
    Sat: 9:30am to 3:00pm

    Regina Quance Branch
    2615 E Quance Street
    Regina, SK S4V 3B7
    Mon-Fri: 9:30am to 5:00pm
    Sat: 9:30am to 3:00pm

  2. Alternative Ways to Bank
    To follow the Saskatchewan Health Authority recommendations for social distancing, we encourage our members to only visit branches for transactions that require counter service.

    Our online and mobile banking solutions continue to provide fulsome services, and a full list of services for all of your day-to-day banking transactions is available on our website. Should you need any assistance with online services, you can contact our MemberLine Team for additional service support.

  3. Fraud Prevention
    At times like this, we are aware that there can often be an increase in fraudulent activity. We encourage our members to be vigilant and exercise caution if they receive any phone calls or emails asking them for personal or banking information. TCU Financial Group will never call to ask for personal information. For your security, we will provide you with ongoing updates should we hear of any fraudulent activity or scams.
  4. Caring for Our Community
    Perhaps more than ever, this is a time to help others. As a credit union, community is at the core of our values, and our commitment to serving our members’ needs remains unaltered. As we navigate the new circumstances brought upon us by COVID-19, rest assured we are looking out for our members and our staff; things like providing staff with options to take care of their individual family situations, increasing the intensity of the cleanliness of our locations, and providing a variety of out-of-branch banking options. We will continue to create an action plan by monitoring the advice from our government and health leaders and will provide updates as things evolve.

Sincerely,
Greg Peacock
Interim CEO & CFO

Message from the Board of Directors



The Board of TCU Financial Group would like to announce some changes to the leadership team at the TCU Financial Group. CEO, George Greenwood has resigned of his position as of the end August, 2019. Earl Warwick, the Board Chair expanded, “George has decided to pursue other opportunities outside the credit union system. We would like to sincerely thank George for his significant contributions to TCU Financial Group over the past four years. We wish him the very best of success in the next chapter of his career.”

George Greenwood provided some sentiments to summarize his tenure as CEO. “As I write this message, plenty of wonderful memories come to mind from my 22 years in the Canadian Credit Union System. In 2015, I had the privilege of joining TCU Financial Group. The people who work at TCU Financial Group and volunteer on the board are top notch, caring, and compassionate people. They all share the same goal and that’s to make sure this credit union is successful. Thank you everyone for your support over the years and trusting in me.  I will miss TCU Financial Group and the Credit Union System but I leave knowing the future is bright and the people at TCU Financial Group are more than capable of facing the challenges and taking hold of the opportunities ahead.”

With the transition of leadership, the Board has named Chief Financial Officer, Greg Peacock as the interim CEO. Warwick mentioned, “The Board of Directors will be convening our Recruitment Committee to start the process of selecting our next CEO shortly. In the interim, Greg Peacock will be acting as our interim CEO. Greg’s longstanding history with TCU Financial Group, along with his 25 years of experience within the financial services industry provides the strategic direction and leadership for the financial operations of the credit union.”

To add to the capable Executive Management Team, TCU Financial Group is happy to announce the hiring of new Chief Operations Officer, Tim Owens. Joining TCU Financial Group in August 2019, Tim brings with him 20 years of leadership, marketing, and relationship management experience. He spent the previous 13 years at Concentra, working to help credit unions across Canada create value for their members. Tim`s experience includes developing and executing future-focused strategies, leading purpose-driven stakeholder engagement and working to foster a winning corporate culture.

Peacock commented, “We are excited about the opportunities ahead for the credit union. We’ve been working on strategic initiatives together with the Board that we feel will set us up well for the future. The addition of Tim to the COO role will give us a balanced leadership structure that is needed to help shape and implement a refocused member experience.”
