Job Description:

Some people love the status quo. Those people don’t work at ATB Financial.

The world’s most successful people are those with the courage and freedom to take chances and be different.

They’re hungry to do more, to be more, to change the face of their industry—and their world—forever.  No, this isn’t a Tony Robbins speech; this is how we think at ATB.

Branch Manager

This is a position designed for talented leaders who are looking for the freedom and influence to make a difference in their communities while driving toward being number one in their marketplace. And if that isn’t enough, you need to know that the branch manager role has been identified as the most important leadership position in the entire company—yes, even more important than anyone in our head office.
