Diego Patino is a Senior Vice President and Private Client Advisor at Bank of America Private Bank in Houston, Texas.

Before joining the Bank of America Private Bank (formerly U.S. Trust) in 2017, Diego served as a private banker at Citi Private Bank. He began his financial services career in 2001 at Van Kampen Investments.

Diego holds a Bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Houston. A loyal UH Alumni Association member, he enjoys mountain biking and playing golf. Diego resides in Katy, Texas with his wife, two children and two dogs.
