TD Bank announced an expansion to its existing corporate and retail presence in Jacksonville through the lease of more than 30,000 square feet of office space and plans to build new stores in the area. This will add more than 250 total jobs over the next two years to the approximately 440 employees currently in the Jacksonville region.
With this expansion, TD is opening a new operations center that will add approximately 200 customer service and operations positions. The bank will now occupy an additional space in the Deerwood office park where it maintains an existing corporate presence. TD also continues to enhance its retail footprint across the state. The bank currently operates 10 stores in North Florida and a total of 153 stores statewide.
“Florida is experiencing growth unlike any other state in the country and the addition of our new operations center and the enhancements we’re making to our store network are investments in the Florida Market for years to come,” said Nick Miceli, Regional President, Florida Metro, TD Bank.
According to Jacksonville Business Journal, the population growth in Jacksonville, due to new residents to the area was also a contributing factor to the expansion. “Expanding our presence in Jacksonville is a good example of skating to where the puck is going to be,” said Miceli.
“Jacksonville has become a hub for the financial services industry, and I am proud to see even more job growth in the area with today’s announcement from TD Bank,” added Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.”
