EUROPE - Jacqueline Lommen has been appointed to Hewitt Associate's pan-European consulting team as a senior international benefits consultant.
Previously, she was a pension supervisor at De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), where she was a dedicated member of CEIOPS, the EU insurance and pensions supervisory body.
She also dealt with the issues around the practical implementation of the new European solvency regime for pension funds, known as the IORP Directive, and was involved in the supervision of several recently established cross-border IORPs operating across the European Union.
Ian Hinton, head of international benefits consulting for Hewitt in Europe, said: "[Lommen's] career has mixed regulation with hands on commercial experience - meaning she is ideally placed to advise our clients.
"They are increasingly looking for a combination of informed guidance and innovative solutions so I am confident that Jacqueline can make a real impact both in helping our clients and in leading several of Hewitt's pan-European thought leadership projects."
