Meet Our President

  • Brady Murray
    General Agent, MassMutual Intermountain West

    Brady’s start into the world of financial planning started while studying business in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Over the years he has gained perspective and experience in the financial planning industry as an Agent, Certified Financial Planner®, District Manager, Vice President and most recently as President/CEO of a thriving financial services company in Salt Lake City, Utah where he leads an organization of 65 full-time Financial Professionals that manage in excess of $1.3 billion in assets.

    Another aspect of Brady’s life includes his love for serving others. Brady has been blessed with 2 sons who have Down syndrome, one biological and one adopted. Since welcoming his two special needs sons into his life, Brady has become very active in the Down syndrome community.

    He is the Founder and President of Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome (RODS), a nonprofit dedicated to helping orphaned children who have Down syndrome find loving homes. Through his and many others efforts, dozens of orphaned children with Down syndrome have been united with loving families through the sport of triathlon and endurance racing. Brady has completed numerous Ironman triathlon’s, including the Ironman World Championship in Kona, where he and his son were featured on the 2012 NBC Ironman broadcast.

    Brady has served on the National Advisory Board of the Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University since 2009. He is a 2014 Utah Business Magazine 40 Under 40 recipient. In 2015 Brady and his wife Andrea were selected as the Utah State University Young Alumni of the Year.

    Believing that no amount of professional success can make up for failure in the home, Brady and Andrea Murray consider the opportunity to be parents and raise their 5 children to be their greatest opportunity to make a positive impact in the world.

  • Raiza M. Sakamoto
    Managing Recruiter

    Originally from Florida, I became a full-time Utah resident in 2011. There’s just something about the mountains and the people that truly make Utah my home at heart.   I’m a Western Governors grad with a B.S in Business Management. As a former owner of 2 successful small businesses here in Utah, I now specialize in Recruiting and Business Development.  Prior to coming to MassMutual, I was the regional manager for another agency and successfully grew their presence in Utah by recruiting and managing more than 60 agents and eventually expanded into 2 offices.  The best part of recruiting and management has been helping people to grow professionally and see them advance in their careers. 

    I am a firm believer in giving back to the community and am particularly passionate about animal rescue.  My husband and I have been married for 16 years and we have been blessed with 3 incredible children, Kayla 14, Mia 9 and Kai 7.  In my spare time I love to read, cook and have fun with my family and our two crazy but lovable labs.
