MassMutual announced it is continuing to develop its sales team with the addition of Francesca Messano as managing director covering southern California and Hawaii.
Messano joins MassMutual from Fidelity Investments, where she was employed for eight years, most recently as senior vice president, retirement specialist for southern California and Hawaii. Prior to Fidelity, she spent six years in the retirement arm of Pioneer Investment Management, according to an announcement.
“In today’s highly-competitive environment, the expertise of top industry professionals like Francesca is of tremendous value to retirement plan advisers,” said Hugh O’Toole, senior vice president of sales and client management for MassMutual’s Retirement Services Division, in the announcement.
Last week, MassMutual announced another Fidelity alumnus, Daniel Darby, was added to the sales team (see “MassMutual Adds to Retirement Services Sales Team”).
Messano is based in San Clemente, California, and can be reached at 949.246.9648.
