In April, the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB) began its formal search process to recruit a new Chief Executive Officer to lead their member-governed organization to its next level of excellence.

OMREB is pleased to announce the appointment of George Greenwood as their new CEO.

With an MBA from Dalhousie, a Bachelor of Technology in Management from BCIT and with designations of both Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Certified Financial Planner, Greenwood brings a skill set that includes strategy, finance, operations, and human resources.

“This is an exciting time for OMREB, and we are confident that George’s highly collaborative approach and strong focus on members will move us even further along the road to becoming a stronger, more effective organization,” says OMREB President Michael Loewen.

After an extensive career in the credit union system – which can be mapped across three provinces – Greenwood joins OMREB with a strong background in a highly regulated member-based industry, and a passion for building constructive corporate cultures and unique member experiences. Additionally, Greenwood’s amassed knowledge and track record of developing strategies to thrive in a sector that is competitive and rapidly changing makes him ideally suited for this leadership position.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining the team at OMREB as we work together to continue adding value and benefits to our realtor members. I look forward to working with the board and the dedicated and hardworking staff at the OMREB office as we advocate and promote on behalf of the realtor members throughout the region of Peachland to Revelstoke,” says Greenwood, adding “It’s exciting to be returning to BC after 15 years away.”

As CEO, Greenwood will work in tandem with the Board of Directors and the dedicated staff team to continue to improve the services available to the organization’s realtor members and further elevate OMREB’s position within organized real estate, both provincially and nationally.

Greenwood takes office effective September 3rd, 2019.
