Toronto’s 50 Most Influential: #27, Tim Hockey

Our annual ranking of the people whose smarts, connections and clout are changing the city as we know it

Tim Hockey

Toronto-Dominion Bank

27 As president and CEO of TD Canada Trust, Hockey manages the bank’s personal, ­commercial and small-business arms, which accounted for the bulk of the company’s net-income increases this year; TD’s earnings in the first three quarters of 2015, between $2.1 and $2.3 billion each, were five per cent higher than in 2014. Hockey is also a diehard cyclist, and this year, more than most, his two worlds collided: TD’s investment of more than $1.3 million in Bike Share was a lifeline for the floundering program. Meanwhile, Les Domestiques, the philanthropic cycling club he founded in 2009 (its members include Mattamy Homes founder Peter Gilgan and OMERS Ventures CEO John ­Ruffolo), raised more than $15 million to construct Milton’s Mattamy National Cycling Centre. Some of Hockey’s ­riding buddies are also on the Toronto Advisory Council, a 34-CEO board he helped create that occasionally serves as an advisory panel for the mayor’s office.

Side Gigs:

The 52-year-old Hockey is a SickKids Foundation director and donor, an executive member of the Canadian Bankers Association, a director of CivicAction and an advisory board member of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40.
