Former TIAA Bank CEO Blake Wilson

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports that two months after TIAA Bank announced the retirement of CEO Blake Wilson, the Jacksonville-based bank has decided instead to fire Wilson over unspecified policy violations.

News4Jax reported a TIAA Bank spokesperson confirmed the authenticity of the internal memo but declined to issue a comment.
