Bala Cynwyd, PA, September 15, 2014 – First Financial Group, a general agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) is expanding its Bala Cynwyd office by adding 3,264 square feet. In anticipation of further growth, First Financial Group secured an adjacent office space during its last expansion in 2009. In 2014 that growth experience called for the wall between the two office spaces to come down, allowing First Financial Group to occupy the entire ninth floor of 2 Bala Plaza, totaling 19,650 square feet. The expansion will provide capacity to increase many of the company’s programs, including its internship and management trainee opportunities.

"This expansion is an investment in our future and will allow us to better serve our clients and the Philadelphia community," said Harris Fishman, president and CEO of First Financial Group. “With the additional space we can hire more associates, expand our internship program and create opportunities for the entire organization.”

Fishman has been with MassMutual for 25 years and has led First Financial Group as the president and CEO since 2002. During his tenure, the company has grown from 40 associates to over 150 associates and staff.
