Nolan Sigvaldason

Nolan Sigvaldason

Nolan is a lifelong member of Noventis Credit union. He has served on the board since 2013, and currently holds a position on the governance committee. In the past, Nolan has served on the audit and compensation committees as well. He believes in holding the executive team accountable, and ensuring the credit union does only what is best for its members.

With increasing government regulations for financial institutions, Nolan feels it is important to make sure that Noventis has a younger director presence. This is integral to knowledge transfer over the years to come, as someone will need to ‘pass the torch’ on to the next generations of directors.

Nolan is currently a Roadway Construction Technician with Manitoba Infrastructure. Additionally, Nolan owns and operates Region Fine Art, an online art gallery and auction house.

Born and raised in Arborg, Nolan - along with his wife Melody and 2 daughters – currently lives in Fraserwood. Nolan is a strong supporter of the community, local business, agriculture, education and recreation.  His knowledge, ideas and ambitions will help Noventis Credit Union’s success and growth continue.
