“As a courageous and respected figure in the credit union system, Shawn is the ideal person to lead Libro forward through times of accelerated change.”

He grew up on a farm in rural Ontario and began his career with Mennonite Savings and Credit Union (now Kindred Credit Union). In his varied career he has held Executive and Board roles at organizations across Canada within the credit union sector. He brings a track record of leadership that is rooted in values, purpose, and strategic clarity, as a means to make a difference for all stakeholders.
Shawn Good said: “I’m both grateful and honored to partner with Libro to advance their purpose, vision, and impressive legacy serving owners and communities across southwestern Ontario. I’m excited for the opportunity to leverage my values, experience, and passion for serving Owners, as head coach at Libro.”
