Previously, Pino served in a variety of roles at John Hancock, including internal wholesaler and relationship manager. She has more than 11 years of experience in the retirement plans marketplace.

Braam Nel supports emerging market sales in Eastern Pennsylvania and partners with Tim Ross, managing director for institutional sales. Previously, Nel was a relationship manager for retirement plans at MassMutual, and has more than 10 years of experience in the retirement plan and investment markets.

Taylor Booth supports sales of retirement plans in the institutional market in Illinois and Indiana. Prior to joining MassMutual, Booth was a workplace sales director at MetLife, overseeing business development in the voluntary benefit and retirement plans markets. 

Michael Farber supports the emerging market for wirehouse firms in North Georgia, and partners with Jason Bouldin, who supports the institutional market.
