Faces of City Ave- Harris Fishman, MassMutual Greater Philadelphia
Meet Harris S. Fishman, President and Chief Executive Officer of MassMutual Greater Philadelphia. Harris is a firm believer that in order to build long-lasting relationships with clients, one must also have to serve the local communities in which they live and work. He is an advocate for providing financial and literacy programs to families across the region and champions special needs families and their children. It’s no surprise that his favorite project at work is MassMutual’s annual Special Needs Awareness Night. Over the last 13 years, they have hosted over 6,000 children, adults and their caregivers at their annual Phillies game night out.
