Lule is committed to cultivating a culture with diverse perspectives and talents and was the recipient of TD Ameritrade’s 2015 Impact Award, a coveted annual award which recognizes a Managing Director who is paving the way in building, developing, and retaining a diverse group of associates — while continuing to foster a culture where all associates feel valued, respected, and challenged.
