MassMutual Retirement Names New Sales Director

Christopher Stout was added as a Southeast sales director for MassMutual Retirement Services.

Stout is responsible for business development and sales support of MassMutual’s third-party and dedicated distribution channels focusing on retirement plans in the small-plan market. Stout is in Canton, Georgia, and is partnering with MassMutual Managing Director Jeffrey Keller, covering Georgia and Alabama. Stout reports to Shefali Desai, emerging market sales manager for the division.

Before joining MassMutual, Stout served nearly three years as regional vice president of retirement plan sales with Guardian Insurance Company of America. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Stockton State College.

“The Southeast territory continues to grow aggressively, and MassMutual is committed to supporting our distribution network with knowledgeable, service-oriented individuals like Chris,” Desai said. “With MassMutual, retirement plans in the small-plan market have the opportunity to leverage services that many other providers don’t offer. Chris’s expertise will be a great asset to retirement plan advisors and third-party administrators.”
