In his more recent executive vice president and chief strategy officer role, Forristall directed strategic planning efforts across all of TS Banking Group and led the client-facing business units.

“Having joined the company in an entry-level role, my story is just one of the many people who have experienced tremendous personal and professional growth as a direct result of working at TS Banking Group.

“Over the past 10 years, I've had the opportunity to directly manage and work with Kevin on a wide range of projects and opportunities throughout the company.
