Brad Adams joined TCF Financial as executive vice president and director of corporate development and strategy.

Adams will partner with all of TCF’s business lines and assist them in the identification, evaluation and execution of various strategic opportunities with an emphasis on maximizing shareholder value.

He reports to Thomas Jasper, vice chairman and chief operating officer.

Before joining TCF, Adams was executive managing director, corporate development for Talmer Bancorp. He also served as managing director and chief financial officer of a private equity firm centered around bank investments and as director of investor relations for a large Midwestern bank holding company.

“A critical aspect of executing against our strategic pillars of diversification, profitable growth, operating leverage and core funding is a sound strategic planning and corporate development discipline,” said Craig Dahl, TCF’s vice chairman and chief executive officer. “Brad’s deep expertise in corporate development, his track record of leading strategic planning processes for financial services companies and executing capital management strategies will be a valuable addition to our management team, particularly as we focus on generating consistent, long-term value for our shareholders.”
