Tim Hockey is a financial services veteran with more than 36 years experience in banking and wealth management in both Canada and the United States. He is known for his passion for leveraging technology to enhance the client experience.
Tim stepped down as President and CEO of TD Ameritrade, in November of 2019, upon the announcement of the intended sale of the firm to Charles Schwab Corporation. TD Ameritrade was a Fortune 500 NASDAQ listed company with a $1.4 trillion in Client Assets, a $28B USD market capitalization, 10,000 Associates, and $6B USD revenue.
Hockey joined TD Ameritrade in January 2016 from TD Bank Group, where he most recently served as Group Head, Canadian Banking and Wealth management, and as President and CEO of TD Canada Trust. His primary responsibilities covered a portfolio of global businesses totaling nearly CDN $13 billion in annual revenue and included global direct investing, advisory and Canadian asset management businesses, as well as leadership of Canadian personal banking, business banking and auto finance. Over his 32-year career with TD, he held senior positions in a variety of areas including mutual funds, retail distribution, information technology, small business banking, credit cards and personal lending.
Hockey holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Western Ontario and sits on the Advisory Board of the Richard Ivey School of Business. He also served on the Board of Directors for the SickKids Foundation, the largest non-governmental granting agency in children’s health in Canada, and was Chair of the Hospital for Sick Children’s Research and Learning Tower Campaign. He is also the Chair of the Board of CivicAction Foundation. He was an Executive member of the Canadian Bankers Association and served as Chair of the organization. He is also a past winner of Canada’s “Top 40 Under 40,” and served on the organizations selection committee. Perhaps the thing Tim is most proud of, is winning "Humor Me", a charitable stand up comedy event in search of Canada's funniest CEO!
An avid cyclist, world traveler and philanthropist, Tim spends his time in Toronto, Greenville SC, and aboard "The World".
