The Osoyoos branch of the Bank of Montreal (BMO) has a new manager — a local girl who has made very good.
North America’s eighth largest bank Tuesday announced Michelle Quail will be taking the helm at its Osoyoos location.
“I’m pretty excited to be a manager there who was born and raised in Osoyoos,” said Ms Quail. “And a lot of the current customers are excited as well because they’ve known me for a long time.”
Ms Quail’s banking career is extensive, beginning with seven years with the Interior Credit Union — where she started as a teller and worked through various functions, including lending, supervising and human resources — and continuing at Osoyoos Credit Union, where she continued to gather experience in various areas.
“My experience is kind of all over the place,” she said.
Ms Quail joined BMO in February 2018.
Besides raising twin daughters Chloe and Sophie with husband Chad, Ms Quail is actively involved in the Osoyoos community. She is the architect of the popular Trick or Treat Main Street Halloween event and also serves on the Town Recreation Commission.
She plans to use her new role to further advocate for local organizations that support youth, family and environmental efforts.
Serving customers for more than 200 years, BMO is a highly diversified financial services provider. It has total assets of $728 billion — as of October 31, 2018 — and more than 12 million clients. It prides itself on having a “team of diverse and highly engaged employees.”
