Read on to learn more about Keenan with me 🙂

Tell us about you and your Credit Union journey. How did you get to where you are now?

I was a very lucky individual to get a start in the Credit Union system coming out of University, as I didn’t have much work experience compared to some of my peers. Through a stroke of luck, I came across a job listing at 11:00pm at night for a Financial Analyst job at Innovation Credit Union. The deadline to apply was at midnight that night, so in a stress induced coma, I churned out a cover letter + resume in 45min, applied, and prepared like crazy for the job interview. In June 2018, I started in their Corporate Finance department and remained there for 3.5 years. Now I work for Conexus Credit Union as a Senior Financial Performance Analyst, doing the things that I love most about finance. What I believe has set me apart over the years is my intense curiosity to learn things, my natural people skills in communicating and developing relationships, and my clear passion for finance.

Why did you join SYL?

As a young individual starting his career in the Credit Union system, I found the SYL to be an amazing group of like-minded individuals who I could learn from, network with outside of the Credit Union I work for, and to provide me the opportunity to develop my leadership skills. The SYL is also doing great work providing opportunities to learn and develop our young leaders within the Saskatchewan Credit Union system – I wanted to have a hand in providing those opportunities to my peers. With 1 year under my belt I can, with 100% confidence, tell anyone that joining the SYL was the right choice.

What are you most excited about this year for SYL?

By far, it’s organizing and hosting the Paula Stone panel interview for Development Days alongside the SYL dream team – SYL alum Alex Roettger and current member Julie Beleshinski. Paula was a fantastic speaker and I had so many takeaways after the discussion I had with her.
