US -Roger Beech has joined Watson Wyatt as US western division practice leader for international consulting.
Prior to joining Watson Wyatt in San Francisco, Beech was a European partner in the international practice of William M Mercer, based in London.
He worked with a variety of major European multinationals and US regional offices on diverse assignments, including assessing the opportunities for private health care and savings plan provisions in Azerbaijan, expatriate benefit planning, post acquisition integration, and the efficient financing of insured employee benefits through multinational pooling and captive insurers.
Beech specialises in advising companies across many different sectors on how to align their benefit and reward practices internationally with corporate human resource policies, which in turn are designed to support improvements in business performance.
Prior to its acquisition by Mercer, Beech worked for the international consulting team of Sedgwick Noble Lowndes, and also spent three years based in Philadelphia with Noble Lowndes International in the early 1990s.
