The firm has appointed Francesco Lamanda as chairman of the board; Martin Meerkerk as market leader and co-chairman; Marco Morelli to lead the human capital business; and Renato Dorrucci as EMEA head of talent management consulting.
Lamanda, who joined the firm in 2005 as leader of the human capital business in Italy, will now focus on developing human capital consulting, actuarial services for pension funds, healthcare and advice on employee global mobility in Italy.
Co-chairman Meerkerk will continue his current role as head of human capital business for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), which he has held since joining the company in December 2008.
In his new role, Morelli will oversee the TESI consulting business acquired by the firm in 2008. He has been the head of reward consulting in Italy since joining the firm in 2005.
Dorrucci moves across from the human capital team where he was a consultant for strategic human resource management for five years. He will focus on leadership development in his new position.
All appointments will be based in Italy apart from Meerkerk who will be based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
