The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board has hired its new CEO, who comes to the organization with B.C. ties.

George Greenwood comes to the Kelowna-based organization with an MBA from Dalhousie University, a bachelor of technology in management degree from BCIT. He is both a chartered professional accountant and a certified financial planner.

Greenwood spent the last four years as CEO of the TCU Financial Group in Saskatoon, according to his LinkedIn page, and five years before that as the CEO of Advance Savings Credit Union in Moncton. He held various operations and management positions with Vancouver City Savings Credit Union between 1997 and 2004.

“This is an exciting time for OMREB, and we are confident that George’s highly collaborative approach and strong focus on members will move us even further along the road to becoming a stronger, more effective organization,” OMREB president Michael Loewen said in a press release.

Greenwood will start in his new role on Sept. 3.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining the team at OMREB as we work together to continue adding value and benefits to our Realtor members,” Greenwood said. “I look forward to working with the board and the dedicated and hardworking staff at the OMREB office as we advocate and promote on behalf of the Realtor members throughout the region of Peachland to Revelstoke. It’s exciting to be returning to B.C. after 15 years away.”
