GLOBAL - Hewitt Associates has named Perry Brandorff, its European head, as president of its consulting business.

Brandorff has been with Hewitt for 23 years and led its merger with the UK’s Bacon & Woodrow.

Outsourcing chief Bryan Doyle was named president of the Illinois-based firm’s outsourcing business.

“The two leaders will lead global operations for these business areas, and focus on further integrating the firm’s global capabilities and expertise,” Hewitt said. Both will report chairman and chief executive Dale Gifford.

“Our new appointments more closely align management with our core businesses of outsourcing and consulting, enabling faster decision making and execution in these areas, with the goal of delivering even stronger results to our clients and shareholders,” Gifford said.

Daniel Holland, Hewitt’s chief operating officer and manager of Hewitt’s North American region, will retire on September 30 after 31 years with the firm.

Doyle and Brandorff will assume most of his responsibilities.
