Meet Lisa Skakun, Mogo’s Chief Legal & Administrative Officer
It may not look like it, but it’s not always fun and games here at Mogo. There are a whole bunch of rules we have to follow because… well, finances. The cool thing is our Chief Legal & Administrative Officer is not all about finances. Even though she knows a lot about that too. Meet Lisa!
Lisa: I had a crush on Mogo… I’d been watching them from afar (not in a stalker way but in a “Hmmm they’re interesting and I’d like to get to know them better kind of way”) and really liked what Mogo was doing in the area of disrupting traditional banking. When the opportunity presented itself, I decided to swipe right.
Lisa: Traditional banking products like loans and mortgages can be pretty boring. I think I just yawned saying that. Mogo’s CEO is leading the charge on reinventing traditional banking via a truly unique digital customer experience and brand.
Lisa: Contrary to popular belief... like shoes, you can never have too many lawyers! Seriously though, at Mogo, we’re doing business in a highly regulated world, and we need to be on top of it at all times and know that we’re doing the right thing for our employees and customers.
Lisa: Sam and Stella. They’re family. Each of them is magic on four legs.
Lisa: Okay okay, special shoutout to my friend Alistair Veen, chef and owner of Tap Restaurant in South Surrey who just won BC Sommelier of the Year. I highly recommend the curried prawns and scallops!
