“I am excited to take on this new role as TD Bank continues to expand its business and provide unmatched convenience and legendary service to customers in Florida,” said Diaz. “There is tremendous growth opportunity here, and I’m excited that TD Bank is serving the banking needs of more Floridians and Florida businesses each day.”

In his new role, Diaz will maintain an office in Coral Gables.
