US - Investment consultant Mercer has announced the appointment of Kimberly Plumber as the lead of its US implemented consulting business.
"Mercer's leadership in investment consulting and the strength of our investment management capabilities form a solid foundation from which to grow our implemented consulting business in 2009.
Plumber joined Mercer from Wellington Management Company, where she held the position of vice president of consultant relations.
