Announcing the New Chief Executive Officer of Integris Credit Union
On behalf of the Integris Board of Directors, it is an honour and a pleasure to announce the appointment of Alison Hoskins, BBA, CPA, CCE as our Chief Executive Officer.
FROM HERE, ALL IN, FOR YOU … this is the Integris promise. Alison is the very personification of our promise: a remarkable woman and a passionate leader dedicated to empowering her people through collaboration and innovation.
Alison was born and raised in Prince George, leaving only to attend University at Simon Fraser University, where she obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a concentration in Organizational Behaviour. Alison returned home in 1996 to complete her Chartered Accountant Designation, articling with Deloitte. After ten successful years at Deloitte, Alison recognized an opportunity at Integris she could not resist.
In 2005, shortly after her second maternity leave and the amalgamation of Prince George Savings, Nechako Valley and Quesnel and District Credit Unions, Alison joined Integris as our Controller. Since then, Alison has been widely recognized as a strong, capable leader at Integris.
In 2013 Alison was promoted to Vice President, Finance and began the Certified Chief Executive Leadership Program through Credit Union Executive Society (CUES). Alison’s strategic vision was recognized and her role elevated to VP, Strategy & Finance. On two occasions, Alison has been appointed as the Interim Chief Executive Officer by the Board demonstrating strong leadership through periods of challenge and transition.
Alison is all in. Over the years, Alison has proven herself to be a dedicated volunteer and champion of the region in which she lives, works and loves. She currently sits as the Vice President of the Prince George Ski Club and is an active volunteer at Alpine and Ski Cross races throughout the North. Alison’s volunteer history includes sitting as the Treasurer on the Board of the Canada Winter Games 2015 Host Society, as well as a volunteer coach for the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club and the Prince George Youth Soccer Association.
When Alison is not working for you or volunteering on a race course, she can be found skiing our local mountains or riding her mountain bike with her teenage sons.
“I feel truly privileged to live in North-Central British Columbia and I realize the benefits of being here every day! Integris is one such benefit. Our financial cooperative, enabled by our members and staff, enriches people’s lives and builds our communities in remarkable ways. Integris’ mission and values are my own and to lead our purpose-driven organization is an incredible opportunity made even better by the dedicated people I work alongside. To be selected as the Chief Executive Officer for Integris Credit Union, Integris Financial Planning and Integris Insurance is a great honour and responsibility. I look forward to serving you, the members of our communities, for many years to come.”
Please join me in congratulating Alison on her appointment as CEO.
