ISELIN, N.J., Sept. 3, 2015 /PR Newswire/ -- MetLife Solutions Group (MLSG), the complete financial solutions provider for individuals, families, employees, and business owners, today announced that the firm will commemorate the opening of its new headquarters in the Iselin section of Woodbridge Township with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 10, 2015 from 4:00 '" 7:30 PM. The opening of the MetroPark hub is a milestone for MetLife Solutions Group, an office of MetLife and a part of the MetLife Premier Client Group, and follows the strong growth the firm has experienced recently after implementing a strategic focus on team development and serving specific members of the local community.

The consolidation of separate offices into one centralized hub was driven by demand from the Baby Boomer population of Central New Jersey, the ability to provide more career options for women after seeing them thrive in the MLSG environment, and greater opportunity to match the diverse communities the firm serves.

"Our new direction is to build individual teams that each specialize in certain areas or groups, such as small businesses, retirees, and beyond," said MetLife Solutions Group Managing Partner John Bucsek. "The location of our new MetroPark hub offers a stronger sense of collaboration and communication, something we felt was missing from our previous network of separate offices throughout the region. The consolidation has also fostered a culture of more idea exchanging, more teamwork, and healthier competition, a benefit our clients will be able to enjoy."

The new MetLife Solutions Group site will house four advisor teams, with the goal of uniting all of the firm's top advisors under one roof. Furthermore, the consolidated MetroPark site is earmarked to be the training hub for all MLSG professional development programs. The consolidation of several separate offices into one has also ensured a higher level of compliance for the firm within the highly-regulated finance industry.

At the ceremony, Bucsek will join the firm's other Managing Partner, Bellaria Jimenez, in presenting charitable donations to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Habitat For Humanity, and Junior Achievement of New Jersey.

"We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our new headquarters by making these donations to three of the most impactful nonprofits in the Garden State," said Jimenez. "One of the primary reasons we moved to MetroPark was so that we could better serve our local communities, and we cannot think of a better way to mark this occasion than through community service. We are excited to continue working with these organizations throughout the rest of 2015 and beyond."

Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac will be attending the MetLife Solutions Group ribbon-cutting ceremony. MetLife U.S. Retail division Executive Vice President Eric Steigerwalt will also be speaking at the event, along with Jimenez and Bucsek. MetLife Solutions Group is located at 186 Wood Avenue South, Suite 301, in Iselin.
