PORT ALBERNI - Taurean Seib’s leadership skills were honoured at the National Credit Union Awards recently held in Winnipeg. Coastal Community Credit Union’s Branch Manager for Port Alberni was one of five winners of the National Credit Union Young Leaders Award.

He also received the top $10,000 scholarship prize, which he can put toward tuition and travel costs to attend a leadership development program at a recognized university in Canada.

“To be included amongst our system’s emerging leaders is truly humbling,” said Seib, “and to be selected as this year’s scholarship recipient is nothing short of an honour.” He’ll be putting the scholarship to good use by starting an MBA in Executive Management with a specialization in Leadership in the coming year.

Coastal Community Credit Union has benefitted from Seib’s enthusiasm, creativity and commitment since he joined in 2006. Starting as a Member Service Representative at 19, he will soon take on the Regional Manager role for the Comox Valley.

The married father of two said, “I am so grateful to work for an organization that invests in the development of our employees. My current success is only one example of how leadership is fostered - and celebrated - at Coastal Community.”
