Northern Savings names Geoff Grodecki as new CEO

will be making a move to the
North Coast as he takes on the
duties of CEO at Northern Savings
The Board of Directors for Northern Savings have reached into Saskatchewan to select the next head of the financial institution, announcing Geoff Grodecki as the new President and CEO.

In an announcement on the Northern Savings website, Mr. Grodecki is noted as someone who is committed to the ideals of cooperatives and committed to providing great service to members every day.

He brings twenty years of Credit Union experience to Northern Savings and is set to move his family to the North Coast and take up his duties on May 2nd.

He arrives in Prince Rupert from the Macklin Credit Union where he served as General Manager, a notice on the Macklin website notes that he leaves his Saskatchewan position on April 27th.

His LinkedIn portfolio has already been updated to reflect his new position in Prince Rupert.

The new CEO takes the helm after a year which saw three different people hold the office previous to him in the last year, the position most recently held by Barry Delaney who stepped in as interim CEO while the Board conducted its nationwide search.

As Board Chair Flora D'Angelo notes in the announcement, 2015 provided for a number of challenges for Northern Savings, a period of time which saw a downsizing of the company's operations and a reduction in staff at the Prince Rupert office.
