American Banker has released their annual Most Powerful Women in Banking rankings, recognizing TD Bank leaders with their Top Team in Banking Award. And for the second and third year in a row, respectively, Jane Russell and Ellen Patterson were among the 25 Most Powerful Women to Watch.

On the heels of this recognition, TD Bank's Top Team in Banking leaders will be honored at an industry gala in New York on October 4th.

Each year, American Banker identifies 25 Most Powerful Women to Watch and recognizes the Most Powerful Teams in Banking to honor companies with strong female representation in their senior ranks. TD Bank’s leaders were selected for their leadership, innovation, mentoring, and technology in business as well as within the community.

"I'm very proud of all our winners this year and the work they have done," said Greg Braca, President and CEO, TD Bank. "Their business acumen is matched only by their commitment to our communities and colleagues in the work they do through diversity and inclusion, mentoring team members and so much more."

"This team represents the broader organization of women at TD who are leading change in business and diversity," added Karen Buck, Executive Vice President, Commercial, Retail, and Payment Operations and Head of Women in Leadership. "One of the primary ways we do this is by paying it forward—at every level in the organization. It's not just about these individuals. This award honors the efforts of all of TD's fantastic women working to enrich the lives of our employees, customers, and communities."
