TD Bank (TSX:TD) has hired a high-level rainmaker with the appointment of Frank McKenna as deputy chairman. The former New Brunswick Liberal premier and recently retired Canadian ambassador to Washington will drum up business in both Canada and the United States, TD announced Thursday. Reporting to CEO Ed Clark, McKenna “will be responsible for supporting the bank in its customer acquisition strategy, particularly in the area of wholesale and commercial banking,” the bank stated. It’s a full-time job based in Toronto and requiring a lot of travelling, McKenna said in an interview.

Didn’t take the former Premier long, did it?

I was kind of hoping he would find a way to help out New Brunswick in his post Washington career.

Maybe he still will.
