President & CEO

Curtis Stange

​​​ ATB Financial President and CEO - Dave Mowat

Curtis Stange is obsessed.

Specifically, he’s obsessed with customers. What do they love about their bank? What drives them crazy? How could banking make their happiness deeper, their time richer?

For more than three decades, Curtis has looked for answers to these questions, first at one of Canada’s “Big Five” banks and then at ATB, where he helped to launch a new line of business focused on entrepreneurs all over Alberta. He also played a key role in the transformation of our banking systems, ATB’s biggest tech challenge in a generation. Curtis has led our strategic planning and operations teams to new places, like the world’s first fullfeatured virtual banking assistant in Facebook Messenger, our adoption of new tech like Apple Pay and blockchain, and the launch of ATB LendR.

More recently he served as ATB’s first-ever chief customer officer, where he championed new ideas and programs at ATB to help us listen—really listen—to our customers. As our President & CEO, he leads a team of over 5,000 creative ATBers on a mission to make banking truly work for every Albertan.

Curtis was born, raised and educated on the Prairies. He loves the Rockies, road biking, and spending time with his family. He believes he would have made a great firefighter or farmer if he didn’t wind up in banking. He also believes that anything is possible if you take the time to listen and work hard.

Curtis is a proud recipient of the Order of Athabasca University for his public service work. As a big advocate for mental health, he sits on the board of the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Calgary chapter. He’s also served on the boards of Theatre Calgary and Payments Canada, and the United Way Campaign Cabinet.

Have a question for Curtis? He can be reached at, and he reads all his own email. He’ll write you back. (Yes, really.)
