Doug Robbins

2022 Board Member Candidate

Doug Robbins

I have enjoyed a long successful career as a Business Intermediary/Advisor and have developed extensive experience in small to medium sized businesses.

I have always had a philosophy to give back to my community and have served on more than a dozen community boards over the years, as well on numerous private company boards.

What can you specifically contribute to the Board?

Long term strategic planning is a service we provide to many of our clients.

I also see that there may be opportunities for FirstOntario Credit Union to grow via acquisitions/strategic alliances of/with smaller credit unions.
