TCF Financial in Wayzata, Minn., on Thursday named Craig Dahl chairman of the board.

Dahl was already CEO and president of the $22 billion-asset company. As chairman, he succeeded William Cooper, who died in February after battling cancer. Cooper had served as chairman since 1985.

Dahl took over as CEO last year, after Cooper retired from the role. Dahl was previously in charge of TCF’s equipment finance division. He joined the company in 1999.

In a press release, Vance Opperman, TCF’s lead director, praised Dahl’s “clear vision” for the company.

“Over his 18-year career at TCF … he has established an experienced leadership team that has enabled us to meet the evolving needs of our customers and repositioned TCF to meet the changing demands of the financial services industry,” Opperman said.
