US - Mercer Human Resource Consulting has assigned a newly-created role to Steve Fein, following his departure from Towers Perrin after an 18-year reign.
Fein will become head of HR Technology and Delivery, which will see him serve as a strategic advisor on linkages with the fast-growing outsourcing capabilities of Mercer HR Services.
He will also advise on the Corporate IT Advisory Board.
Brian Storms, the firms CEO and president, said: “Steve’s role is critical as clients implement their human resources transformation plans. “Technology is critical as Mercer assures continued leadership by building complementary products and solutions that clients need.
“More and more of our clients are choosing to work with firms who can provide seamless, integrated global solutions. At the same time, smaller companies are looking for less-customized solutions at a price they can afford.
“Steve’s experience in effective application of technology will help Mercer ensure that we maintain client focus and achieve unmatched speed of execution.”
At Towers Perrin, Fein most recently held the position of Global Managing Director, Human Resource Delivery Solutions, where he helped build the firms health and welfare outsourcing business.
Previously, from 1983 to 1987, Fein was a US practice leader at Hewitt Associates.
