Dave Mowat, President & CEO “We’re changing our world by putting people first and making dreams come true.” – Dave Mowat, President & CEO Dave Mowat is a banker. That sounds pretty straightforward. And it is, in the sense that he deals with a lot of big numbers, understands the confusing world of banking, leads a lot of creative associates, and continually thinks about how to serve hundreds of thousands of customers across the province. But he’s also a banker who’s not afraid to talk about love. Love of getting the customer the best deal, and gaining, protecting and growing the love and respect of all Albertans.
