CKNW's Bill Good talks one-on-one with BC's Top CEO's, delving into how they achieved success, what lessons they have learned along the way and what they envision for the future of their industries. In a business of numbers, here are a few Launi Skinner, CEO of First West Credit Union, deals with on a regular basis: Nearly 1300 employees, 171000 members and $7.1 billion in assets. While these figures may be daunting for some, Launi leads First West with vision and strategic direction to make a real difference in the financial lives of members. Educated in business administration, Launi's resume includes business building experience at 1-800-Got Junk, and President of Starbucks US. Launi's high profile leadership has been recognized by Fortune magazine, and since joining First West, she's been consecutively one of Women's Executive Network's Most Powerful Women in Canada. In her community, Launi holds leadership roles with the Minerva Foundation for BC Women, Science World's Champions Circle, and more. International leadership and renowned business acumen, it's our honor to welcome Launi Skinner, today's guest for CKNW's Chief Executive Series. The Chief Executive Series is presented by FortisBC and hosted at the Beedie School of Business (Simon Fraser University). BCBusiness is the exclusive ticket partner.
