SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Douglas W. Van Order will lead the management team at MassMutual Northern California in Sacramento as general manager.
Van Order will be responsible for recruiting and developing new financial professionals in addition to overseeing operations with the agency's general agent Robert B. Fakhimi, CLU, ChFC, CFP.
Van Order, a veteran in financial services for over 18 years, will focus on recruiting new and experienced agents to the office that is primarily focused on working with small business owners and professionals to help them grow and preserve their wealth.
"The capital area is full of professionals and business owners who face concerns about their financial future -- whether they are concerned about pensions and 401 (k) accounts or life insurance and disability income protection. I see my role as an opportunity to provide our community with the resources and the right financial professionals to help them realize their financial dreams."
Career opportunities in financial services are growing, said Van Order. According to the 2012-2013 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook, personal financial professionals are among the fastest growing careers because many Americans continue to struggle to save for retirement. Decreased funds for corporate and state pensions in many cases are leading to benefit reductions and increasing demand for financial education and help, according to the 2012-2013 BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook report.
Van Order plans to recruit 24 financial professionals to MassMutual Northern California to assist the public with their investment*, insurance, and retirement needs.
"Doug has more than 18 years of experience in this industry -- both working with consumers and training others in the field. I am looking forward to him making an impact in Sacramento," said Fakhimi.
Van Order resides in Roseville with his wife Kendra and their three children.
