International Falls native named as new CEO of TCF


One of the region's most prominent banking enterprises is getting a new CEO.

TCF Financial Corporation said in a news release Monday Craig Dahl, the current vice chairman and president, will step into the CEO role at the start of 2016, when the man who currently has the position – William Cooper – is done.

“I believe that Craig is the right person to lead TCF going forward,” Cooper said in the release. “He has been a vital part of TCF’s successes during his tenure, especially the transformation of the company that has taken place over the past several years."

Craig joined TCF in 1999, the company says, serving in high-ranking positions within a number of different areas in the company. He's a native of International Falls.

Just a few months ago, TCF rebranded with a new logo (seen at right) that it hoped would feel more flexible, Twin Cities Business Mag wrote, one that can fit into the "rhythm" of anyone's day.

(If you want a brand identity expert's take on the new look, which includes sentences such as, "The gradients don’t win it any additional grace with me," then check out this post by Under Consideration.)

But the switch also included improvements to its services, making the website more responsive and improving online banking, Twin Cities Business Mag wrote.

TCF, based in Wayzata, had $19.8 billion in total assets as of June 30, with 376 branches in Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Colorado, Wisconsin, Arizona, South Dakota and Indiana, the release says.

Cooper will stay on as chairman through 2017, the release notes.
