Thoroughly engaging and brimming with information, barely a page goes by without an interesting fact. The snappy text is presented in bite-size nuggets and moves effortlessly from topic to topic. The writing is lucid while simultaneously being witty and wise. 

Paul Thomas is a leading corporate blogger, accomplished public speaker and forward thinking CEO who has worked in the financial services sector for 40 years. His deep knowledge of contemporary issues coupled with his passion for communication find expression in his weekly blog which has been read in over 25 countries. 

Paul has developed a reputation as a thought leader and commentator on the political, economic, social and technological issues facing business and society. An authentic and trusted communicator, he offers informed insights and opinions in an authoritative and engaging voice.

His journey from bank teller to credit union CEO began in 1976. He followed an old-fashioned career path that saw him rise through the ranks. Along the way, he gained broad experience in retail banking across a range of financial institutions. Paul now considers himself a credit union “lifer”. 

Under his leadership, Gateway Credit Union was named Credit Union of the Year for 2012. Notwithstanding his strong commercial focus, Paul is passionate about Gateway’s “people helping people” philosophy and believes that credit unions must constantly change while forever staying the same.

Versed in all aspects of management, Paul is a high caliber executive with particular expertise in strategy development and execution. He has taken Gateway to the leading edge in the use of social media tools. Paul’s credentials include an MBA and a Diploma in Financial Services.
