Retirement Annoucenment

After 21 years, the time has come to bid farewell to our CEO and leader, Gordon Kirkwood. Gordon’s tenure with Entegra Credit Union dates back to 1997 when he became the CFO of then, Holy Spirit Credit Union. His role as CFO quickly transitioned when he was promoted to CEO in 1998. Under his leadership and guidance, Entegra has grown from a one-branch organization and $74 million in assets under administration to four branches, an online division, and over $803 million in assets under administration.

During Gordon’s tenure as CEO, Entegra experienced a period of significant financial growth. Gordon orchestrated a rebrand from Holy Spirit Credit Union to Entegra and launched an online division, Implicity Financial. Gordon Kirkwood has had an immeasurable impact on Entegra and has been instrumental to the growth that Entegra has experienced over the years.

Gordon's career in the credit union system spans over four decades. He joined Astra Credit Union in 1977 as a teller and has since held almost every position imaginable within the credit union system with experience primarily in Finance and IT. Gordon has transitioned through the credit union system with stops at Cooperators/Cambrian Credit Union, Credit Union Central of Manitoba, and Assiniboine Credit Union, before finally ending his journey at Holy Spirit/Entegra Credit Union.

It is with great pleasure that the Board, management, and staff thank Gordon for the past 21 years and wish him all the very best in his retirement.
