MassMutual Capitol District

Meet Joe

Joe Cantanucci, MassMutual Capitol District
Joe Cantanucci has achieved many of his life goals, yet he is most proud of knowing he has provided others with the knowledge, guidance and resources they need to succeed.

In 1998, Joe had graduated from New York University with a bachelor's degree in Audio Engineering and worked as a record label executive. His biggest career break however, didn't come from working with famous musicians but when he met two financial advisors. Their enthusiasm for helping others achieve financial security was infectious, leading Joe to make a monumental career shift into financial services. Joe immediately took to his new role working with closely held corporations implementing retirement plans, buy-sell agreements, succession plans and implementing wealth transfer strategies for affluent families. His first year in business, he qualified as one of the top new advisors at his firm.

Joe's next career break came when he was offered the role as Unit Sales Manager with Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) in San Francisco. By recruiting others who shared his passion for service and providing them with support and inspiration, Joe created a district office model of efficiency and productivity. He grew the office from a 500 square foot incubator space to a highly successful 8,000 square foot district office. He qualified for MassMutual's prestigious Management Council (2003-2016).

Eager to replicate Joe's success on the east coast, MassMutual tapped Joe to lead its Capitol District agency. Headquartered in Vienna, Virginia and with offices in Annapolis and Towson, Maryland, the agency serves over 21,000 clients1, has nearly $2.5 billion in assets under management2 and $5 billion of life insurance coverage inforce.3 In this role, he continues to pursue his vision of building a market leading financial services firm and helping others achieve career success and financial security for those they love. Joe and his wife, Nathania, live in Falls Church, Virginia with their young sons, Joseph and Calvin.
