LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., July 30 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Hewitt Associates, a global human resources consulting and outsourcing company, today announced it has appointed Eric Fiedler and Yvan Legris as co-presidents of its Consulting business effective October 1.

"We are extremely pleased to have such strong internal talent to fill these critical positions. Eric and Yvan have demonstrated exceptional leadership and impressive results throughout their careers, and both have broad international management experience that is increasingly vital in our growing organization. The Consulting business is in good health, and the new leadership is being asked to take us to an even higher level of performance," said Russ Fradin, Hewitt's chairman and chief executive officer.

Eric Fiedler (41) currently leads Hewitt's Asia Pacific Consulting business and Yvan Legris (45) heads Hewitt's UK Consulting and Benefits Outsourcing businesses. As co-presidents, both will report directly to Mr. Fradin.
