Fischer and Narcisse will report to Lori Dickerson Fouché, Chief Executive Officer, TIAA Financial Solutions (TFS).
“In the three years since we announced the acquisition of EverBank – now TIAA Bank – we have successfully integrated the bank into the organization and have extended the array of banking services we offer to our participants, customers and institutions,” said Fouché. “Over this time, Blake has been a tireless advocate for customers, developed innovative solutions, and delivered strong business results. We thank Blake for his service, and wish him the best in the next phase of his life.”
Fischer, who was previously President and Chief Operating Officer of TIAA Bank, is a veteran of the banking and financial services industry. He joined TIAA Bank in 2011 as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Prior to that, he was a partner at Deloitte.
“We’re fortunate to have Steve stepping into this leadership role, with his extensive industry experience, track record of success with our bank, and deep commitment to our customers,” added Fouché.
Narcisse, who joined TIAA in July as Senior Managing Director and Head of Wealth Management, will continue to lead an integrated team charged with delivering differentiated products and services and personalized financial advice to TIAA customers. Prior to joining TIAA, Narcisse served as Managing Director and the Head of International Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley.
“Reflecting the key role that our advisory capabilities play in helping provide superior financial outcomes for customers, Colbert and his team will continue to work across TFS to ensure our advice delivery model meets our customers’ growing and changing needs,” said Fouché.
Following the acquisition and integration of TIAA Bank, Blake Wilson has decided now is the right time to move to a new phase in his life, and he will retire from the company at the end of the year. Blake will remain with TIAA in an advisory capacity through the end of the year and work closely with the team to ensure a smooth transition for customers and associates.
