MassMutual hires workplace distribution chief

Bob Carroll was appointed as head of workplace distribution for Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance, a role that covers retirement plans and other benefits.

Mr. Carroll reports to Teresa Hassara, head of workplace solutions for MassMutual. He is "responsible for executing the workplace distribution strategy, continuing to develop sales talent, driving revenue and growing MassMutual's share of the retirement and work site markets," said a MassMutual news release Monday.

Mr. Carroll had been head of sales and distribution at John Hancock Retirement Plan Services.

At MassMutual, he replaces Hugh O'Toole, who left "earlier this year to pursue a new business opportunity," David Potter, a MassMutual spokesman, wrote in an email.
