But Tomczyk will retain a significant stake in the company. The stock sale represents roughly 8 percent of Tomczyk's 2.4 TD Ameritrade shares.

The Omaha-based company said Tomczyk will continue to meet TD Ameritrade's requirement that he hold stock worth at least 10 times his base salary of $1 million.

Tomczyk has been Ameritrade's president and chief executive since the fall of 2008.
