LATIN AMERICA - Hewitt Associates has appointed Thierry de Beyssac as the new head of its Latin American consulting business.
Based in Mexico, de Beyssac will seek to drive the growth and profitability of Hewitt’s business in Latin America.
A spokesman for Hewitt said: “There has been a lot of progress over the last few years and Thierry has a very strong new business background to make the most of the potential in the region.”
Perry Brandorff, president of Hewitt’s global consulting business commented: “The Latin American region represents a large and attractive growth market for Hewitt’s consulting business.”
De Beyssac was formerly responsible for the sales, marketing and branding efforts for Hewitt's European region and based in Paris.
The announcement by Hewitt follows the confirmation by ING in July 2007 that it would buy Santander’s Latin American pension businesses.
Following the deal, ING announced it expected to double its pension fund assets under management in the region between 2008 and 2011.
