MassMutual has hired Garrett Carlough and Andrew Hanlon as sales directors for its Retirement Services sales and client management organization.

Carlough is based in New York City and is providing additional coverage for New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County and northern New Jersey. Before joining MassMutual in May, he worked for Principal Financial Group.

Hanlon is based in Boston and is increasing coverage in eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine. Hanlon spent 10 years with Putnam Investments before, in 2006, joining MassMutual, where he most recently served as a key account manager in MassMutual’s distribution support organization.

“Our retirement services business is experiencing exceptional growth,” says Hugh O’Toole, senior vice president of sales and client management for MassMutual’s Retirement Services Division. “The addition of these two individuals to our already robust team is evidence of MassMutual’s serious commitment to serving advisors and third-party administrators with a strong focus on retirement plans with under $5 million in assets. We will continue to grow our sales and relationship management organizations to ensure exceptional support in all the markets we serve.”
