Chamber Member News:
Welcome New Member:
Randolph Adams II, MassMutual
Randy is a licensed financial services professional with MassMutual, and a real estate agent with Century 21.

After spending years working in the corporate healthcare setting, Randy realized how important financial literacy and financial independence really were. When you don't have those two things, you often tend not to have that much control over your time. When you control your time, you have the ability to spend more time with your family doing the things you love.

What better way to learn these intimidating topics, than to dive right in! After having worked with patients for 10 years, Randy honed his bedside manner. He now takes his patience and ability to listen, and combines that with helping people find their own financial path. Read more.
