Both individuals will report to Julio A. Portalatin, Mercer’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Haderer joined Mercer in 2013 to lead the North America Benefits Administration Group. Previously he was Executive Vice President of Global Benefits Solutions and the Benefits Outsourcing Practices at Aon Hewitt. He also held leadership positions at Mellon/PricewaterhouseCoopers, including Senior Vice President of HR Outsourcing responsible for delivering HR administration services to Fortune 200 clients. Ms. Shan joined Marsh & McLennan in 2013 with oversight of MMC’s global Treasury operations, including capital management, pensions, investments and cash management.

Mercer Provides Mercer Marketplace Exchange Solutions to 247 Companies

Mercer has announced that 247 companies have selected the Mercer Marketplace exchange for their active and retiree exchange solutions. These relationships cover 500,000 employees and retirees and provide exchange access for more than 1,000,000 lives, including dependents. This represents nearly five times the reach of Mercer Marketplace when compared to 52 companies, 110,000 eligible employees/retirees and 220,000 lives of a year ago. Additional enrollments for 2015 will continue throughout 2014. This satisfaction from both companies and individuals gives others confidence in the exchange experience and positions this as one of the standard benefits models of the future. Mercer also provides access to individual medical insurance coverage to an additional 750,000 individuals through the firm's relationship with GetInsured. While enrollment in these offerings may initially be modest, using Mercer Marketplace for delivery of voluntary benefits and individual medical insurance provides an avenue for both employers and employees to begin to experience the advantages the exchange platform offers.
