Julie Humphries was named Mercer’s defined contribution consulting leader, confirmed Stephanie Poe, a spokeswoman for Mercer.
Ms. Humphries is replacing Barbara Marder, who will focus exclusively on being the leader of Mercer’s international consulting group. Ms. Marder was named to the international consulting post last year.
Ms. Poe said in an interview that Ms. Humphries will keep her responsibilities as Mercer’s retirement risk and finance market business leader in the Southwest and Southeast until a successor is chosen. Ms. Poe said she didn’t know when Mercer would choose a replacement.
