TD Bank named Jeff Fazio head of small business specialists, a new role created to lead a specialist team of approximately 100 employees that focuses on small businesses with revenues of $1 million and under. In this position, Fazio will oversee pipeline management, work with product teams on strategy and product enhancement and collaborate with the small business credit center to refine the lending process.

“Jeff’s track record of effective sales management and leadership in small business banking makes him an excellent fit for this position,” Jay DesMarteau, head of commercial distribution at TD Bank, said. “We are confident that under Jeff’s leadership the team will continue to provide support to small businesses to help them succeed in both trying and good times.”

Fazio brings 18 years of small business banking experience to the role. Previously, Fazio served as the small business division manager at Citibank, where he worked with 36,000 small businesses and managed a portfolio of $20 billion in deposits and loans.

Fazio is based in Mahwah, NJ, and will travel throughout TD’s footprint from Maine to Florida to meet with market-based teams.
