Canada's Central 1 Names Blackburn Interim President/CEO
VANCOUVER, B.C. (6/20/13)--Canada's Central 1 CU has appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Senior Vice President of Strategy Helen Blackburn as interim president/CEO, effective Aug. 1.

Central 1 is the central financial facility and trade association for the British Columbia and Ontario credit union systems.

"Helen has been a much respected and valued adviser to the board of directors and to member credit unions," said Terry Enns, Central 1's board chairman. "Her talent and leadership will provide the stability and continuity necessary during this transition period for Central 1."

Blackburn, who will replace President/CEO Don Rolfe, has more than 15 years' experience as a senior executive within the financial services industry. She was instrumental in leading the integration of the British Columbia and Ontario provincial centrals into the current Central 1.

Prior to joining Central 1, Blackburn was senior vice president of strategy and CFO at Credential Financial Inc. and Northwest & Ethical Investments, where she oversaw the strategic planning process and directed the financial affairs of both organizations. She is active on boards in both the non-profit and private sector.

An executive recruitment is underway for the permanent president/CEO, Central 1 said. The search is anticipated to take up to six months.
