Exciting News at TFS

September 17, 2014

Dear Loyal TFS Associates,

There is some exciting news here at TFS. As we continue to grow, TFS remains committed to providing the highest level of support and service in all areas of the business to both our clients and advisors.

We are very pleased to announce the addition of Nicole Olivo to our Operations and Compliance team. Nicole joins us effective September 15, 2014. Nicole will be responsible for Internal Audits, monitoring Risk and Controls, and implementing Regulatory Policies and Procedures. Nicole brings over thirteen years of compliance experience to our team and will work closely with Anthony Lopez and myself to insure great success here at TFS.

We are also very pleased to announce the return of John Moon to our Operations team. John will start with us on September 22, 2014. John has been with TFS since 1998 and has extensive back office experience as well as sales experience as a Financial Advisor. We are extremely excited to have John back with us in order to assist in providing top level service to you and your clients.

We regret to inform you that Thomas Asciutto, Compliance Coordinator will no longer be working with TFS effective September 12, 2014. While this is a loss to the company, we wish Tom the best of luck in his future challenges. Tom was a pleasure to work with and a valued member of our compliance team. Tom’s duties will be assumed by Nicole Olivo, and we are extremely confident that Nicole will resume where Tom left off and will grow as a tremendous asset to TFS.

Please help me welcome both Nicole and John with your usual grace and courtesy. It’s great to have them as part of the TFS Family, and we look forward to their contributions to the success of TFS.
