SPRINGFIELD, Mass., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MassMutual's Retirement Services Division is pleased to announce the addition of Patrick Alfano as sales director to support its growing presence in the Rocky Mountain region. Mr. Alfano, who joined the firm on June 4, reports to Shefali Desai, emerging market sales manager for MassMutual's Retirement Services Division.
Mr. Alfano joined MassMutual from Victory Funds where he most recently served as a sales director. In his new role, Mr. Alfano is responsible for business development and sales support of MassMutual's third-party and dedicated distribution channels focusing on retirement plans with assets under $10 million. He is partnering with MassMutual's managing director, Andy Ambrose, in covering the Rocky Mountain region including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. Mr. Alfano is based in Denver, Colo.
"The Rocky Mountain territory continues to grow aggressively and MassMutual is committed to supporting our distribution network in this area with knowledgeable, service-oriented individuals like Pat," says Desai. "With MassMutual, retirement plans with less than $10 million in assets have the opportunity to leverage services that many other providers don't offer to smaller retirement plans. Pat's expertise will be a great asset to retirement plan advisors and third-party administrators striving to serve plan sponsors and participants in this market," adds Desai.
