About Joe Moglia - Former CEO & Chairman of the Board, TD Ameritrade, Former Head Football Coach, Coastal Carolina University, Speaker on Leadership:

As the former Chairman of the Board and former CEO at TD Ameritrade and the former head football coach of Coastal Carolina University, Joe Moglia has one of the most "unique resumes in modern business," according to Forbes, and his tremendous success from the locker room to the board room provide invaluable lessons on strategic risk-taking, how to look at challenge with new perspective, and leadership. Having honed his message of the four-pillars of success through his own trials as a business leader and football coach, Moglia is an in-demand executive leadership speaker heralded as "incredibly gifted" (Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC); "raw and remarkable" (Collegiate Sports Summit); and "pitch-perfect" (Bentley University).

He was the chairman of the board at TD Ameritrade, and is the chairman of Fundamental Global Investors and Capital Wealth Advisors, and chair of athletics and executive advisor to the president at Coastal Carolina University.

In 1984, Joe entered the MBA Training Program at Merrill Lynch, where there were 26 people—25 MBAs and one football coach. By 1988, he was Merrill Lynch's No. 1 producer in the world. By the time he left, he had been a member of both the Institutional and Private Client Executive Committees, and his final responsibilities were all Investment Products, the Insurance Company, the 401(k) Business and the Middle Market Business.

Joe became the CEO of TD Ameritrade in 2001, and when he stepped down in 2008, shareholders had enjoyed a 500% return. In 2009, he became chairman of the board. TD Ameritrade recently announced that they would be acquired by Charles Schwab. The combined company will be worth $100 billion and have client assets of approximately $5 trillion. When Joe arrived, these numbers were $700 million and $24 billion.

Joe has also been a football coach for 25 years, but it’s not been a traditional 25 years. He began his career as a coach for 16 years, moved to the business world for over 20, and back to coaching in 2009. In his last 11 years of college coaching, he has been a part of eight championship teams, and as a head coach, has a winning percentage of .718. He has also received multiple Coach of the Year honors, including the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award, was the recipient of the Vince Lombardi Award and inducted into the Lombardi Hall of Fame.

He has received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and the Sharp Trophy for Leadership. He has been honored by the National Italian American Foundation, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, the American Institute for Stuttering and the Stuttering Association for the Young. Joe has been inducted into seven halls of fame, is a member of the National Economics Society and is the recipient of three honorary doctorates. Joe has already had a book written about his life, and is the only author in the world to have written books on both investing and football.

What Joe Moglia Talks About:

BAM: A Philosophy for Success
While Moglia was at the helm of TD Ameritrade, the company grew its market capitalization from $700 million to $10 billion and delivered six consecutive years of record earnings — despite the financial crisis.

And in six seasons at Coastal Carolina, Moglia has led the football team to four Big South Championships and qualified five seasons for the NCAA Football Championship Playoffs.

So what are his secrets of success?

Aimed at seasoned business executives and aspiring leaders alike, this speech offers insight from Moglia’s extensive career as a leader in two of the most competitive industries. He discusses his BAM philosophy that has guided him and the organizations he’s led. What is BAM? It’s about standing on your own two feet and learning to take responsibility for yourself.

If Joe’s life had a playbook, Be a Man, or BAM, would be on the cover. To Joe and all those whose lives he has touched, BAM means accepting responsibility for yourself and your actions. It’s about how you handle a situation when your back is up against the wall—when it’s sometimes easier and often tempting to do the wrong thing. BAM has nothing to do with gender. It has everything to do with being a great leader. A great leader has a respect for others and cares about other people in his or her charge.
