This year, the employee benefits landscape continues to evolve, with a heightened focus on financial well-being.

Today, we explore the critical role financial benefits play in employees' lives, and I'm thrilled to have a seasoned expert with us who can shed light on this transformative shift.

I'm Hilary Topper, and welcome to Hilary Topper on Air. Today, our guest is Frank Scalese, CEO of Blue Ocean Wealth Solutions, a MassMutual Firm.

Here are the questions I asked:

Hilary talks with Frank of Blue Ocean Wealth Solutions on HTOA

  • Frank, welcome to the show! To kick things off, can you give our listeners an overview of Blue Ocean Wealth Solutions and how it's "changing people’s lives,” as your mission statement suggests?


  • Before we delve deeper, could you share your background and expertise as the CEO of Blue Ocean Wealth Solutions?


  • Where did the name Blue Ocean come from? Did it come from living by the ocean or the Book Blue Ocean Strategy? Can you talk for a moment about that?


  • Now, workplace benefits are crucial, and Blue Ocean recognizes that. How does your approach to voluntary benefits enhance employees' financial well-being?


  • Now, Blue Ocean is a MassMutual firm. How does this partnership benefit your clients?

Before we move on, I am so appreciative of our sponsors and must thank them. Please support our sponsors and tell them you heard about them on Hilary Topper on Air.
