With 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, Lindner most recently served as Senior Vice President, Head of Retail Banking at Scottrade, overseeing the bank's online platform, product development and banking operations. Previously, he had managed more than 100 retail bank branches for The Bank of New York, and was responsible for JPMorgan Chase's mortgage origination business in Connecticut and New York State, north of New York City.
As leader of TD Bank's Mortgage Loan Officer sales force, Lindner will work to grow the business through a combination of sales force expansion and integration with the Retail Bank.
“As a top 10 bank in the U.S., TD has all of the ingredients for strong mortgage business growth in 2018 and beyond," said Bechtel. "We have loyal customers and prospects who want to work with us, quality lending options for every type of buyer, and the established industry expertise needed to bring all of it together. Scott and I are both proud to be part of such a strong, dedicated group of professionals who are committed to helping each and every customer achieve the dream of homeownership.”
