Most bankers prefer to stay out of the spotlight, but apparently Dave Mowat isn’t a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. The president and CEO of ATB Financial, a Crown corporation owned by the Government of Alberta and the province’s largest home-grown financial institution, has been front and centre since coming back to Alberta in 2007 after a seven-year stint in Vancouver as the CEO of Vancity. Most recently, he has become the face of his company’s new advertising campaign. Billboards for ATB feature Mowat’s email address, encouraging customers to drop him a line with any questions and receive a response from the CEO.
