New BMO boss for Manitoba region

  • Print

RICK JAQUES has been appointed to BMO Bank of Montreal's top job in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.

Jaques takes up the position after a posting as BMO's vice-president for the Windsor region in Ontario.

"It is always exciting to take on a new responsibility and to be able to get to know this beautiful part of the country," Jaques said.

The bank is the second largest small business lender in the country and Jaques said that is one of the areas he will concentrate on in his new position as vice-president Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.

"My job is to bring it home and make it happen," he said. "Small business is the lifeblood of the country's economy."

BMO has more than 375 employees in the region and a network of 30 branches.

This will be the eighth posting in Jaques' 20 years with the bank. He will report to Robert Hayes, senior vice-president, Prairies division, who is based in Calgary.

In addition to the small business sector, Jaques said he plans to focus on helping personal banking customers save more money on their banking services.

A program called BMO SmartSteps has enabled more than 100,000 of the bank's clients across the country to save about $67 million through reduced banking fees, lower interest costs or having less money go towards taxes.
