It is with sadness that we announce the retirement of Elaine Nordquist from North Valley Credit Union following over 30 years of service to our credit union. Her final day with our company was June 8th, 2018.
Elaine began her career in the financial services industry at a chartered bank in 1971 and spent five years in that position, resigning in April 1976. She then took time out of the workforce to raise a family. Elaine signed on with the Esterhazy Credit Union in March of 1988.
During her tenure she held the positions of Teller, Office Supervisor and finally Accountant. Elaine feels her greatest accomplishments were guiding the credit union through two banking system conversions. She also played a major role in the amalgamation of Esterhazy Credit Union with Stockholm & District Credit Union to form North Valley Credit Union in 1998. She also was front and centre during the acquisition of the assets of the Bank of Montreal in 2000.
Elaine has always been a tremendous resource to the front line staff and others within the organization. She has trained, mentored and supported many employees over the years. Her commitment to the credit union was proven time and again by the conscientious way in which she carried out her responsibilities. Elaine was an excellent employee and a good friend.
Elaine plans on spending a lot more time at the lake as well as travelling and spending more time with her family in her retirement.
On behalf of everyone at NVCU please accept our best wishes for a wonderful retirement. We will all miss you.
Roy Spence, CEO & General Manager
