Twenty-one months ago we moved from Vancouver to Calgary with my employer at the time. Three months later we moved into our house. A year later layoffs landed and I was one of them. Three days later I joined an agency, then later left to join another UX consultancy. Change for certain has been a constant thread.
A couple weeks ago we listed our house. It sold in four days. The plan at the time was to find a new place and maybe downsize. After the sale a former colleague contacted me about a job opportunity. We talked, he made an offer. A couple days later, after much discussion with the family, I accepted.
So it’s with this post that I let you all know that I’m on the move again. This time back to Vancouver.
I’m joining the team at Central 1 Credit Union as Product Manager, Direct Banking. I’ll be overseeing their suite of MemberDirect banking products starting in March. Having worked in the credit union system for a big part of my career I’m excited about returning to my roots in banking and helping to shape Central 1’s products.
Over this past twenty-one months I’ve met a lot of great people here in Calgary, made some new friends, helped move UX forward a bit more (with Calgary UX), seen my son off to his first year of school and watched my wife blossom in her career. I’ve had a lot of wonderful opportunities to grow, learn and share and I’d like to thank everyone for that.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank the team at nForm. When I joined them back in 2009 I wasn’t expecting such a short ride. I’ve been truly fortunate to have worked with such a great group of people and will miss you all. Your support in this decision has been greatly appreciated.
