UK - Consultant Hymans Robertson has formed a new international consulting practice and has named Keith Faulkner as its first chief.
Hymans, a division of Milliman Global, will base the new division in London. The move is part of a reorganisation by the consultant as it attempts to break on to the world stage.
Ronnie Bowie, head of the firm’s employee benefits unit, said of the new unit: “When Hymans joined the Milliman Global organisation in May 2001, it did so with an enthusiastic commitment to create a London-based international consulting practice.
“Our intention is to work with clients in the UK and around the world to satisfy the growing demand for professional, business-focussed advice with respect to international employee benefits. This new practice is being established for the benefit of all members of the Milliman Group”.
