Michele Baldasarre was named vice president of institutional markets for MassMutual Retirement Services, in charge of relationship management for the firm’s large retirement plan clients.
The position is new, said David Potter, a MassMutual spokesman, in an e-mail. MassMutual defines large plans as those with assets of $150 million or more, Mr. Potter added.
Ms. Baldasarre supervises 30 relationship managers who support large plan sponsors and their participants. Clients include corporations; states, counties and municipalities; Taft-Hartley or labor unions; and not-for-profit organizations, said a MassMutual news release. She reports to Una Morabito, senior vice president for relationship management.
Ms. Baldasarre was leader of consultant relations at Aon Hewitt, where she “managed relationships with third-party evaluators and industry consultants,” said MacKenzie Lucas, an Aon Hewitt spokeswoman, in an e-mail.
Ms. Baldasarre left Aon Hewitt on April 1. “We are actively searching for a replacement for her role,” Ms. Lucas added.
