Cooper Returns as TCF CEO
Bill Cooper, former CEO and current Board Chairman of TCF, is filling the CEO position again. In 2005, he retired after 20 years as CEO. He was succeeded by Lynn Nagorske, whom he now replaces.
In recent months, TCF has suffered because of the slowing economy and the housing slump. After reporting poorer than expected earnings, it seemed ready for the change. The bank is hopeful that with Cooper once more at the helm, it will be able to turn around and recover.
Twin Cities-based TCF has branches in seven states. It is the 12-largest issuer of Visa debit cards in the nation.
TCF Public Relations Director Jason Korstange says, “We try to be the bank for everybody.”

Having been with the Ordway for the past six years, she has seen the Education Department’s growth explode. In order to better facilitate expansion, she will work with newly promoted K-12 Coordinator Erin Gomach to ensure continued success.
Quiala seeks to increase awareness of and participation in theater both in local schools and at the Ordway. By working with schools, the Ordway endeavors to build a greater appreciation for the performing arts, and foster creativity within the local community.
