Regional Vice President-TD Bank North Central Florida 

 

Whether it’s a business or community involvement, what inspires you?

I enjoy both business and community involvement. At TD Bank, every day we have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our customers, employees and communities. Our customer is at the center of everything we do here at TD. This starts by actively listening to their needs, advising them based on these conversations, providing best in class customer service and delivering solutions and products that enhances their lives and businesses. One of the best parts of being in banking is seeing your customers take their business to the next level and watching them grow: this may include adding more employees, expanding their product offerings, expanding to new locations or evening going public. I love giving back to our local communities and TD’s Charitable Foundation and Community Sponsorship programs highly encourages employee participation. Some of the programs we are involved with locally includes: Special Olympics, Junior Achievement, ARC Marion, Rotary and United Way.

 

What aspirations do you have for yourself?

One of our “Shared Commitments” or core values here at TD Bank is developing our colleagues. I’ve been blessed with a great team around me and I have a Senior Leadership team that is deeply invested in my career growth. I want to continue my growth within the company and continue to grow as a leader every day.

What is your favorite way to give back to the community?

Volunteering in the community gives me great pride and pleasure. Volunteering events have included: United Way Day of Caring, Special Olympics, Rotary and Boy & Girls Club of Marion County.

What is your favorite thing about the Ocala area?

My wife and I moved from New York to Ocala in 2005 and our family has grown to include our 2 daughters (ages 7 and 4). We love raising our family here and love calling Ocala “home”.
