Chris Turchansky’s 25-year financial career has been dedicated to his passion for ensuring clients have access to advice and solutions that support their financial goals and enhance financial literacy.
Beginning his career with ATB in 2004, Chris held increasingly senior positions with ATB Wealth, where he became President and led the team for 5 years. Prior to his current role as Group Head, Business, he held the position of Chief Experience Officer where he brought together diverse groups elevating the importance of the client.
Chris understands the need to put the client at the centre of everything we do at ATB and that an exceptional client experience starts with amazing team members. Team members who take the time to engage clients with intense curiosity, serve with deep expertise, build and maintain trust and deliver value. This is what it takes to create a culture that is truly client-obsessed, and it’s what clients can expect from ATB.
Having grown up in a small Alberta town, Chris understands and appreciates the province’s strong sense of community, and he draws on that life experience to help team members come together.
Chris holds a Commerce degree from the University of Alberta and an MBA from Athabasca University and earned his Chartered Financial Advisor (CFA) designation. He is involved with the Hockey Alberta Foundation and the Portfolio Management Association of Canada.
