MassMutual Northern California Announces Expanding Roseville Branch

WALNUT CREEK, CA - MassMutual Northern California, a general agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), today announced that it has relocated its Roseville office one block away from its former office on Douglas Boulevard to more effectively accommodate an expanding staff of financial advisors and their growing clientele.

"I am thrilled to see how successful the Roseville office has been since Doug Van Order stepped in to lead just three years ago," said Robert Fakhimi, president and CEO of MassMutual Northern California. "Our advisory staff has doubled and with that growth in business we're now able to help more local residents successfully plan for their futures."

Van Order, who has been in the field for over 20 years, joined MassMutual as a Managing Partner of the Sacramento/Roseville area. He has just moved his team into a 7400 square foot space that will better accommodate the company and client needs. The branch aims to grow to 50 advisors within the next few years, creating positions for sales managers and other financial advisor professionals.

"With over 20 years as a Sacramento resident, I am very proud to be seeing so much financial growth in my local community," said Mr. Van Order. "I am excited to grow the organization, hire more financial professionals, and deliver services to the people in the area."

The new Roseville office is located at 2241 Douglas Blvd, Suite 100, Roseville, CA 95661. The agency is headquartered in Walnut Creek, with additional offices in San Francisco, Fremont and San Jose.
