"I am looking at a number of possibilities," Mastrantuono reported. "One option I am investigating is starting my own consulting firm. But that is one of a number of areas I am exploring."

Before joining CitiGroup in February 2001, Mastrantuono was senior vice president of retirement marketing for TD Waterhouse
