Thacker’s team supports the day-to-day banking experiences for more than 5 million retail customers, covering deposits, term deposits, debit and stored value card products, while also managing business requirements around legal, regulatory and public policy.
“During his decade-long tenure with TD, Jason’s exemplary leadership qualities have enabled him to enjoy a rare and accelerated career trajectory,” said Greg Braca, President and CEO of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank. “Our senior leadership team has entrusted him to oversee some of the most complex and critical roles at the bank. I am confident that Jason will continue to contribute significantly to TD in the years to come.”
