MassMutual Retirement Services Adds Pharmaceutical 401(k) Plan

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  MassMutual's Retirement Services Division has been selected by Denmark-based ALK-Abello as the new recordkeeper for the company's defined contribution plan. Assets added to MassMutual's platform from ALK's 401(k) plan retirement plan total more than $14.5 million.

Headquartered in Horsholm, Denmark, ALK is a research-driven global pharmaceutical company that focuses on allergy treatment, prevention and diagnosis. With more than 1,800 employees worldwide, ALK is devoted to improving quality of life for people with allergies by developing pharmaceutical products that target the actual cause of allergy.

"MassMutual's industry-leading 401(k) plan tools – which include informative training programs for participants, targeted participant communications and dedicated local teams – were among the top reasons for our selection," says Kelly Doolittle, regional finance director for ALK North America. "I look forward to leveraging MassMutual's impressive suite of services and innovative solutions to further increase the value of ALK's 401(k) plan for our employees," adds Doolittle.

"MassMutual Retirement Services is a great match for ALK. The overall transition to MassMutual utilizing a 100% full plan re-enrollment into target-date funds was seamless. I am pleased to partner with ALK to manage their fiduciary duties and help their valued plan participants strengthen their chances for a successful retirement," said T. Henry Yoshida, principal with the Maresh Yoshida 401k Group, who assisted ALK with the search for a new 401(k) plan provider.  

"Helping Americans successfully retire on their own terms is MassMutual Retirement Services' only mission, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with ALK's U.S.-based employees and retirees to help them better plan and save for their retirement," says Elaine Sarsynski, executive vice president, MassMutual's Retirement Services Division and chairman, president and CEO of MassMutual International LLC.
