TD Bank announced it has promoted four employees into key positions to support and grow the bank's goal of strengthening its position as an industry leader in supporting diverse communities and businesses of all sizes in the Delaware Valley.

Geoff Brandon has been promoted to the Commercial Market President for Pennsylvania. In this role, he will be responsible for leading the TD's Pennsylvania commercial banking team and partnering with internal teams to expand the bank's lending portfolios in the small business through middle market space. Brandon joined TD Bank in 2001. He has nearly 35 years of banking experience that includes retail, commercial and government banking.

TD Bank also has named Mike Trimble Regional Vice President of Suburban Pennsylvania. In this role, he will lead a team of Relationship Managers as they support the commercial bank efforts in Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties. Trimble joined TD Bank in 2010 and most recently was a Senior Relationship Manager in the area. He reports to Brandon.

In addition, TD created a new position in Philadelphia – Community Business Development Officer (BDO), modeled after a similar role in New York City. The Community BDO supports business development, customer advocacy, access to credit and building relationships with diverse businesses and organizations in the area. TD promoted Tommy Berner into this critical role.

Berner has nearly two decades of financial industry experience, including 17 years at TD Bank. Most recently, he served as the store manager of the TD Bank location in Rittenhouse Square. Berner has deep connections to minority communities through his involvement with Boys & Girls Club and the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation. Berner reports to Damien Ghee, Regional Vice President of Philadelphia.

"Businesses of all sizes are important to the communities in and around Philadelphia, and TD Bank is pleased to have a strong slate of leaders to support their growth," said Mike Carbone, TD Bank Regional President of PA/NJ. "Access to credit and financial services is even more important as the region recovers from the economic impact of the pandemic, and Geoff, Mike and Tommy are well-positioned to support our local businesses."

In the TD Bank Commercial Real Estate business, Benjamin Kruger has been promoted to Commercial Team Lead. In his role, Kruger will be responsible for leading a team of Relationship Managers to further develop TD's Commercial Real Estate loan portfolio across various asset classes within the PA/NJ market. Kruger is a veteran banker with nearly 20 years of Commercial Real Estate experience.

"TD Bank believes that providing Commercial Real Estate financing solutions to businesses, organizations, affordable housing and multifamily projects is vital to helping both neighborhoods in transition and those that are stabilized. Ben understands this need and TD's commitment to diversity and inclusion, an important part of which is to continue to work with businesses and communities to provide affordable housing and economic development throughout the Delaware Valley," said Gregg Gerken, Head of US Commercial Real Estate, TD Bank.
