Global consulting firm picks high-tech entrepreneur to lead the charge for innovation in digital initiatives
Mercer, a global consulting leader in advancing health, wealth and careers, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., (NYSE: MMC), has appointed Rohit Mehrotra CEO of Mercer Digital. In his new role reporting to Ilya Bonic, President of Mercer’s Career business, Rohit will work to build a portfolio of digital organization and workforce change solutions that enable businesses to adapt their technology and people models to operate, manage, and compete more effectively.
“Businesses are going through rapid transformation driven by the way we, as consumers and individuals, engage with digital. Employees today expect a level of digital interaction that companies have yet to deliver. That intersection is exactly where Mercer Digital sits, bringing the combination of the digital mindset and the deep expertise of Mercer. We intend to create an environment that attracts top talent that has a passion for charting new frontiers in the digital world. We will bring Mercer IP and digital assets to well-established cloud platforms,” commented Rohit Mehrotra.
Mercer Digital will connect the enterprise to new ways of working. The appointment of Rohit Mehrotra, co-founder and CEO of CPSG Partners and current Global Leader of Mercer’s Workday business, will enable Mercer to combine human capital and technologies in ways that will distinctly change the way organizations connect with their employees, transition to a digital workforce, and transform for the future workplace. Mercer anticipates leveraging its relationship with Workday as starting point and expects significant investment in this area moving forward.
Mr. Mehrotra’s passion for successfully changing the way organizations think about work is evidenced by his past accomplishments. In addition to starting CPSG, he previously founded and grew several highly-regarded firms in the software, systems, and networking space.
