David W. Glidden has been named CEO of Middletown-based Liberty Bank.

New England banker David W. Glidden has been hired to run Middletown mutual lender Liberty Bank.

Glidden, most recently a regional president for TD Bank, will join Liberty as president/CEO on March 18, the bank said Thursday.

Howard previously planned to retire in December, but stuck around once it was announced last fall that Liberty had been accused by an in-state fair-housing advocacy of "redlining" against minority borrowers in its core Connecticut lending market.

On Monday, Liberty and Hartford's Fair Housing Center Inc. had agreed to a settlement in which the bank pledged $15 million in loans and grants to step up its mortgage lending, including opening a loan office in Hartford, to settle unfair lending claims.

Following his retirement, Howard will remain on Liberty Bank's board of directors. He joined Liberty in 2007 after decades in Connecticut banking.

Glidden began his banking career at Boston's former Shawmut Bank and joined TD Bank in 1994.

"I look forward to joining Liberty Bank and working with the team to reach new heights," Glidden said in a statement.

A graduate of Providence College, Glidden also attended The National School of Banking in Fairfield, and The Ivey School of Executive Management in Toronto, Canada.
