Former CEO of TCF Bank dies at 56


Lynn Nagorske, an executive who helped turnaround TCF Financial Corp., lost his battle with cancer last week, the Star Tribune reports.

Nagorske retired from the Wayzata-based bank in 2008. He first joined TCF in 1986 as a senior vice president and controller.

Nagorske later served as president for 12 years before being named CEO in 2006.

“Lynn Nagorske was behind every TCF success for over 22 years,” the bank’s current leader, William Cooper, said in a statement

“With Lynn in the room, you were always confident that the right things were being considered, and the right decisions were being made,” Steven Goldstein, retired president and CEO of the University of Minnesota Foundation, added in a statement.

The Star Tribune also noted Nagorske’s role behind the Science Museum of Minnesota and construction of the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
