Curtis believes in the art of the possible, and works alongside 5,000 team members as the President and CEO of ATB Financial, where each day provides a chance to uplift the legacies and livelihoods of more than 800,000 clients.
With courage, disciplined thought and precise action, Curtis is leading his team through one of the most challenging economic cycles in recent history. An inquisitive nature and a desire to know the people and places around him have inspired Curtis to look beyond his organization’s day-to-day operations, to the external forces shaping ATB Financial’s reality over the long term. He believes this will allow the organization to react and respond competitively, and have a strong position in the future of banking.
With more than 30 years of experience in financial services, touching every major Canadian province, Curtis is also a Stanford alumnus and member of the Alberta Business Council, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Western Executive Council and the Government of Canada's Sustainable Finance Action Council. He also serves on the Edmonton International Airport and Visa Canada advisory boards, as well as on the Stars Air Ambulance board.
