Tricia Dekker, Director Business Development, Healthcare Professionals, ATB Financial

There’s nothing easy about successfully combining a client’s personal and business financing when you’re a lender. But taking in the full picture and getting that balance right for her clients is what drives Tricia every day.

Her holistic approach translates into helping clients access 100 percent financing for their clinics, building stronger enterprises across the province and allowing practitioners to focus on what’s most important – their patients. Better yet, the Healthcare division allows interest-only payments during maternity or parental leave and enables clients to refinance the full value of their clinics – two radically different options from traditional financial services.

“It’s unique and something definitely beneficial for the business owner,” Tricia says of the services group she helped launch. “We are trying to make it so the program is more flexible and has more benefits for the professional, rather than following strictly historical thinking. And that’s what ATB is all about – making banking work for you.”

The Nelson, BC native unleashes 15 years of banking expertise and her creative side to work collaboratively with clients and their teams and ensure their businesses are structured in a way that allows them to capitalize on every opportunity available. It’s an evolution from working part-time as a teller in Victoria while earning her bachelor’s degree in math and economics, and one Tricia relishes. That, and the excitement of developing more options for Alberta’s entrepreneurs.
