Angie Schizas

Director

I have been working in banking for 14 years. I started as a Customer Service Representative (at TD) and worked my way up to Branch Manager (at BMO). A long the way I have grown my skill sets and expanded my competencies above and beyond those needed in banking. I developed my financial knowledge with the Manager of Personal Financial Services role, I advanced my networking skills as a Small Business Advisor, and I expanded my leadership skills as a Manager of Customer Service. By far, the role of Branch Manager was the one in which I have been able to really demonstrate my passion for developing others and motivating a team to succeed. Apart from my foundational responsibilities as a Branch Manager, I have also taken on the extra mandate of being the liaison between our commercial partners and our retail branches as well as being the representative in our market of the Women in Leadership chapter.

Throughout my career I donate and support to many non-profit causes. For example, I have taken part in the Ride to Fight Diabetes for the past 10 years, I have attended numerous banquets to support (mainly) childhood illnesses and I have also participated in countless walks to benefit a wide variety of causes. I do this because I truly believe in giving back to the community and supporting charities.

Apart from donating to causes, I also have experience organizing non-profit events. For example, I organized a poker tournament for the Sabrina Camillo d’Alesio Foundation, I helped organize a Wine Cheese event for a local charity called Community Wings and I have co-organized a poker tournament at Playground Poker to benefit JDRF.

While I am not working or volunteering you can find me either on the soccer field or home with my husband and cats.

I am truly grateful that you have considered my candidacy for a position on your board of directors. What I lack in board experience I make up for in enthusiasm, a passion for helping others and experience with the organization and structuring of fundraising events.
