GERMANY - Hewitt Associates has appointed Dieter Oppermann to lead the international consulting group of BodeHewitt in Germany.
Oppermann, who joins from Mercer, will be tasked with the continuation of BodeHewitt's international competence and market share. Previously, Oppermann led Mercer's international capabilities in Germany.
BodeHewitt management board member Carsten Hölscher said Oppermann had joined at a time when the risk management of global pension obligations was becoming increasingly complex.
BodeHewitt was formed in July 2005 as a joint venture between Hewitt Associates and Bode Grabner Beye.
