UK – Watson Wyatt has hired former Towers Perrin consultant Kevin Newman as a senior consultant in its healthcare and risk consulting team.

The firm said Newman, who left Towers Perrin in early 2001, would “assist major companies with reviewing their total health and benefit programmes to ensure that they meet with wider corporate objectives”.

"I am really pleased to welcome Kevin Newman to Watson Wyatt,” said David Cross, the Watson partner who heads the firm’s healthcare and risk consulting team.

“Kevin brings a wealth of consulting and project management experience and will be a great asset to our team."

Before Towers Perrin, Newman was a client relationship manager at UBSi.
