The executive responsible for leading TD Bank Group’s personal banking business is the new chair of the Canadian Bankers Association.

Teri Currie has been appointed chair of the CBA’s executive council and will serve until 2020.

Ms. Currie is a member of TD’s executive leadership team, overseeing day-to-day and branch banking, real estate secured lending, and investments among others.

"Canada's banking sector continues to lead the world in customer service, innovation, stability and security," said Ms. Currie. "I look forward to working with the CBA's Executive Council as we work together to meet the challenges and opportunities brought on by evolving customer expectations and the impact of changing technology."

She succeeds BMO’s Cam Fowler who remains a member of the CBA’s executive council.

 "On behalf of the CBA and our members, I'd like to acknowledge Cam Fowler's exceptional leadership during the past two years and am grateful for his continuing work on the Executive Council," said Neil Parmenter, President and CEO of the CBA. "We know the CBA will benefit from Teri Currie's great energy, insight and expertise in moving ahead with our ambitious agenda to shape the future of banking for the benefit of all Canadians."
