MEET OUR VP of SUPPORT SERVICES

This is the second year that Ian Hawkins is the VP of Support Services. He oversees the areas of Technology, Marketing, Human Resources, and Finance. He lives in Biggar with his wife Erin and they have two adult sons. 

IAN HAWKINS - VP of SUPPORT SERVICES

We pride ourselves on putting the right people in the right positions at the right time. Our succession plan has been ongoing for several years while people trained and built solid competencies and skills to excel in their new positions.

Ian and his wife, Erin, recently explored Alaska. They enjoy spreading their wings and experience different areas. 


THE MAN BEHIND THE TITLE

Born and raised in Biggar, Ian Hawkins has been preparing for the role of VP of Support Services his whole career.

He farmed for 11 years south of Landis, went to college where he obtained a diploma in Crop Technology and worked in the agriculture industry for 5 years before he was approached in 2012 to become an Ag Lender at Biggar & District Credit Union.

“I thought this was a good opportunity to switch direction in my career. Working Mondays to Fridays allowed me time to coach my kids in various sports.”

Ian was an Ag Lender for 9 years (2 years in Landis) before he became VP of Support Services in 2022. A typical day consists of compiling and interpreting financial reports, meetings about the newest technology offerings, discussing staffing needs, representing the credit union at events, and participating in board meetings. He still enjoys a hands-on approach, and this makes him the best person to look after the building renovations (some planned and others not so much).
