NETHERLANDS - Dolf Hoeks has left Mellon Analytical Solutions to head up Hewitt Associates' international benefits consulting practice in the Netherlands.
The practice advises Dutch multinational companies and other Dutch-based companies on their global pension and benefit programmes, and Hoeks said there was currently great discussion on the future of pensions in the Netherlands.
"Both Dutch companies and multinationals are grappling with the approach to take and I look forward to helping them steer their way forward," said Hoeks.
Hoeks joined from Mellon Analytical Solutions where he was country manager for the Netherlands, and prior to that was a partner at Watson Wyatt, leading its Dutch international team.
Hoeks' appointment continues the expansion of Hewitt's International benefits consulting team in the UK and on the continent with selected hires in various markets.
