TD announces major shakeup in executive team

TD Bank Group has announced that Teri Currie, group head of Canadian personal banking, will be retiring at the end of January 2022, after nearly 35 years with the institution and 11 years as part of the company’s senior executive team.

During her tenure, Currie directly contributed to TD’s brand, talent strategies, and digital and technology capabilities.

“She was instrumental in building TD’s unique and inclusive culture and in creating the legendary customer experiences that are TD’s hallmark,” the bank said.

Upon Currie’s retirement, she will be joining TD’s US board of directors, effective February 1, 2022.

“Teri’s contributions to TD have touched almost every corner of the bank,” said Bharat Masrani, group president and CEO of TD Bank Group. “She rose from a teller at a branch in Calgary to lead our flagship Canadian Personal Bank through a time of significant change and progress. Teri has helped TD grow and succeed while setting the standard for inspiring leadership.”
