Career Story



Patrick Davis

Senior Relationship Manager
Business banking

One of the first things I did when I began working with BMO was contact the VP for Indigenous Banking to get an understanding of BMO’s offer so that I could help some of the nearby communities the best way that I can. BMO’s offer in comparison to some of the other FI’s is phenomenal! To put it simply...BMO GETS IT! I feel like I can take my bank hat off and put my First Nations hat on and help the communities while still doing my job with full integrity.



Why did you decide BMO was right for you and why do you love working here?

I have spent over 20 years in the Banking industry with another FI and left for a short period to get a taste of the other side of the fence as a CFO for a large fuel company. I realized after a few years that I missed helping people and meeting commercial clients on a daily basis. When I decided I wanted to get back into the banking world I found myself in an interesting position where I could decide where I wanted to go and I was in control of who and when.  BMO’s concept of “One Bank” resonated with me immediately and I loved the idea from the moment I heard it.  It is a truly unique concept that would appear simplistic to most but putting it into practice is more difficult than one might imagine.  BMO has done a fantastic job of putting this concept into practice and it is one of the main reasons I made the decision to work with BMO.

What is your proudest moment working at BMO?

So far my proudest moment was realizing BMO’s commitment to First Nations and Indigenous Banking. I have a First Nations background with a large part of my family being First Nation members from Six Nations. One of the first things I did when I began working with BMO was contact the VP for Indigenous Banking to get an understanding of BMO’s offer so that I could help some of the nearby communities the best way that I can.BMO’s offer in comparison to some of the other FI’s is phenomenal!  To put it simply… BMO GETS IT! I feel like I can take my bank hat off and put my First Nations hat on and help the communities while still doing my job with full integrity.

In your experience, what has made you successful at BMO?

The “One Bank” concept is invaluable.  Everyone takes ownership in the organization and it doesn’t matter what your title, division, cluster, group or location is.  If there is something that needs to be done I feel confident that it will get done without question.The partners that we are able to call upon make the job easier and allows me to concentrate on selling and prospecting and building the business. There is an army that we can draw upon when needed and you are NEVER alone!

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Helping clients achieve their short term and long term goals is the most rewarding.  Their success is my success and the best reward is to shake hands with a very satisfied client.

How would you describe your experience and career at BMO in 1 sentence?

BMO has been a comfortable environment and the organization is willing to invest in their people which is a key step to the success of any business.
