Rave Reviews About Joe Moglia
Joe Moglia is an incredibly gifted person with an even more incredible life story. He did a great job speaking to our Senior Leadership Group team very directly with a clear concise message. I was very impressed that he took the time to research our industry and address very specific issues with examples from within our company and his personal life. His ability to motivate and lead a team are well documented; however, his ability to connect with a room that he had never met before was pretty special. He had our team on the edge of their chairs during his presentation and ready to take the field when he finished.

By 1988, he was Merrill Lynch’s Number One Producer in the World. By the time he left, he was a member of both the Institutional and Private Client relative to the Executive Committees, and his final responsibilities were all Investment Products, the Insurance Company, the 401(k) Business, and the Middle Market Business.

He became the CEO of TD Ameritrade in 2001. Over the next seven years, shareholders enjoyed a 500% return as the firm grew its market cap from $700 million to $10 BILLION, and today TD Ameritrade has client assets over $1 TRILLION. In 2008, after the firm had its 6th record year in a row, Joe stepped down as CEO and became Chairman of the Board.
