Mercer has appointed Fiona Dunsire chief executive officer.
Dunsire joined Mercer as a graduate in 1988, and has almost 25 years of experience consulting in the UK.
Her previous roles within the business include senior client leader and business leader in Mercer’s investment business. She has also served on a number of leadership teams within Mercer, advising on cross-business collaborations, such as the consultancy’s workplace savings product.
Dunsire said:“I’m very pleased to be appointed UK chief executive and am looking forward to the challenges ahead.
“Organisations will continue to need Mercer’s support in developing effective defined contribution pension schemes and managing the risk posed by their defined benefit pension schemes.
“However, we are increasingly being called on to advise organisations on how to attract, motivate and manage the best talent. I can see tremendous opportunity in bringing Mercer’s expertise to bear on the broader issues faced by human resources and finance directors.”
