Friday, January 21, 2011


Jan 21 (Reuters) - TD Ameritrade Holding Corp's AMTD.O Chief Operating Officer, David Kelley, will leave the big U.S. online brokerage.

Kelley, who had been COO and executive vice president since 2008, "decided to leave the company after five years to pursue other opportunities," TD Ameritrade said in a statement.

A search for a replacement COO will consider both internal and external candidates, spokeswoman Katrina Becker said. Kelley's team will in the meantime handle his duties, she added.

Kelley "has built a strong technology and operations platform for the company and we are in a good position to transition and increase focus on our front end technology," TD Ameritrade Chief Executive Fred Tomczyk said in the statement.

The COO also oversaw back-office support for TD Ameritrade's retail, institutional and clearing operations. The company runs the largest U.S. discount trading platform.

The company's stock slipped 0.9 percent to $20.30 on Friday.

In an earlier regulatory filing, the company said Kelley's employment termination is effective as of Jan. 28. Before joining TD Ameritrade, Kelley was an executive for several years at Merrill Lynch, now part of Bank of America Corp (BAC.N). (Reporting by Jonathan Spicer; Editing by Tim Dobbyn)

Wednesday, June 9, 2010


NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. (AMTD) Chief Operating Officer David Kelley said three recent technology problems at the online brokerage were "completely unrelated" events.

In an interview with Dow Jones Newswires Wednesday, Kelley, who is also head of technology for TD Ameritrade, said the company "has to take some responsibility" for website, server, and streaming-quote issues that affected brokerage clients on three separate days over the past three weeks.

"I don't want to push [these problems] off on other people...these events almost never happen, but in the end it's our problem."

Kelley said the Omaha, Neb., company's policy is to "make clients whole for whatever inconvenience they encountered" on days when they experienced a service disruption.

Ameritrade has offered to compensate some investors financially for monetary losses during the technology issues, while offering others free trades on a "case-by-case" basis.

On Monday, Kelley acknowledged that a "very isolated" number of clients who use TD Ameritrade's website were affected by a problem with one of the carriers in its network that connects to various Internet service providers, or ISPs, throughout the country.

Kelley said that problem is the reason why customers who use specific ISPs would have service in one area of the country, while some who use the same ISP were experiencing difficulties in others.

Tuesday, a "more broad-based issue" affected customers' ability to view streaming stock quotes before the stock market closed at 4 p.m. EDT. Kelley said the switch on one of TD Ameritrade's main providers failed and was followed by a similar failure on the company's end.

Kelley said the online brokerage was "in close contact with our quote provider all night working on bringing both switches back up."

The site issue on May 20 related to the failure of one of TD Ameritrade's own servers.

Kelley said one potential silver lining for Ameritrade and clients was that the incident Tuesday occurred on a day when the stock market was fairly stable and had low trading volume.

The service disruption "happened at time that was better, if you can say it's ever a better time."

TD Ameritrade didn't have any website issues during the May 6 "flash crash," but experienced a surge in its trading volume, along with its rivals Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW) and E*Trade Financial Corp. (ETFC).

Representatives for Schwab and E*Trade said they had no website problems on Monday or Tuesday.
