BOSTON – TD Bank has chosen a banking industry veteran to take over its Rhode Island and Boston metro south market.
Kevin F. Malone has been named TD Bank market president for Boston, southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Malone replaces David Glidden, who previously held the position and has been promoted to regional president in northern New England.
“Kevin is an experienced banker with deep knowledge of the local communities we serve,” TD Bank Regional President for Southern New England Mark Crandall said in a press release. “I am confident we’ll continue to grow and deepen our relationships with customers in this important market for TD Bank.”
Malone will be based in Boston but will travel through Rhode Island and the rest of the market area, said bank spokesperson Kate Toy.
In his new position, Malone will focus on growing TD Bank’s client base, as well as continuing to direct middle market lending activities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, according to the bank.
Malone has 30 years of banking experience. Prior to joining TD Bank in 2002, he worked with Barclays Capital, ABN AMRO and Bank of Boston.
In its Maine-to-Florida footprint, TD Bank has been getting some of its best customer feedback from Rhode Island, the bank has said.
“We’ve really been hitting it out of the park in Rhode Island since we got here,” Amy Beauchamp, TD Bank retail market manager for the region covering Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts recently told Providence Business News.
The bank has 1,300 locations, which it calls “stores” rather than branches, in every East Coast state from Maine to Florida except Georgia.
