History[edit]

Mutual of America Financial Group was founded in 1945. It specialized in retirement products for nonprofit organizations.[3]

In 1992, Mutual of America bought the 30-year-old 34-story building from Olympia and York in New York for $130 million, and turned it into the Mutual of America building. The building had been occupied by ITT Inc. up until 1990. The building's redesign was managed by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects.[4][5]

In 1971, William Flynn became the President of Mutual of America. He became the CEO the following year, and the Chairman in 1982. In 2005, he became the company chairman emeritus of Mutual of America.[6] In 1994, Thomas J. Moran was named President and CEO of the company, the first person to have been appointed President from within the company.[7]

Thanks to a safe asset management policy, the company remained profitable throughout the subprime mortgage crisis.[8]

In 2016, Thomas J. Moran retired from the role of CEO of the group after a 21-year office. The President John R. Greed replaced him, becoming President and CEO.[9] In 2018, John Greed became Chairman of the Board.[10]
