CEO, Vancity Credit Union
Tamara Vrooman is Chief Executive Officer of Vancity, Canada’s largest credit union. Last year, Tamara earned Vancity its second highest net income on record and sold non-core parts of the business, which simplified Vancity’s structure and added $65 million to the credit union’s already healthy capital base. As Deputy Minister of Finance for British Columbia from 2004 through mid-2007, Tamara also served as Secretary to the Treasury Board and CEO of the Public Sector Employers’ Council. Her prior portfolio was as Deputy Minister and Executive Financial Officer for the Ministry of Health where she balanced the budget and developed the Ministry’s financial management plan.
