CEO David Branch to retire at year's end; Mintz to take helm at Thomson's American Banker/Bond Buyer unit.
Branch joined TFS in 1992 as Chief Executive Officer of American Banker/Bond Buyer. Under his direction, ABBB has enhanced its leadership position in the marketplace and has reached an all-time high in revenue and profits. Prior to joining TFS, Branch was senior vice president of Fairchild Publications.
Branch's successor, Gerry Mintz, joined TFS in 1993 as President of the Asset Backed Securities Group (ABSG), a position which he held until September of last year when he was appointed Senior Vice President, Acquisitions and Development, reporting to TFS President Mason Slaine.
"I am very excited about this opportunity at ABBB," said Mintz. "The changes occurring in the industry are redefining the roles of traditional financial institutions and are creating opportunities to expand our franchise. Coupled with the tremendous distribution and segmentation possibilities presented by the Internet, I cannot think of a more exciting time to be leading this organization. I feel very fortunate to be working with the great team that David Branch has put together."
Prior to joining TFS, Mintz was a Senior Vice President at EJV Partners responsible for sales, marketing, and customer support. Before that, he spent six years at Telerate in several senior positions, including Vice President of Marketing for the Americas Group and General Manager of Telerate Canada. Mintz holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto.
