TIAA announced Monday that Blake Wilson is retiring as chairman and CEO of its Jacksonville-based subsidiary, TIAA Bank, and will be succeeded as chief executive officer by President and Chief Operating Officer Steve Fischer.

Wilson had been CEO since TIAA acquired Jacksonville-based EverBank in June 2017 and merged it with its bank subsidiary. EverBank CEO Rob Clements retired when the merger was completed and was succeeded by Wilson, who was then president.

Wilson joined EverBank in 2002 as chief financial officer.

Fischer joined EverBank in 2011, succeeding Wilson as chief financial officer.

Wilson will remain with the bank in an advisory capacity through the end of the year before retiring. TIAA said Wilson decided the time was right to retire after leading the integration of the merged bank.

“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 Lori Dickerson Fouché, CEO of TIAA Financial Solutions, in a news release. 

TIAA also named Colbert Narcisse as executive vice president of Wealth Management. Narcisse and Fischer will report to Fouche, who is based in New York.
