Aon Hewitt, the human capital consulting and outsourcing business of Aon Corporation, has appointed Paul Rangecroft as new CEO of Consulting Services in Canada, based in the firm's Toronto office, effective immediately.

Hewitt Associates merged with Aon Consulting on 1 October 2010. Prior to the merger, Rangecroft led Hewitt’s retirement and actuarial practice in the East region of its US operations, consulting with clients on a range of retirement projects over his 16 years of association with the firm.

In addition, Rangecroft spent two years with Hewitt as part of its international benefits consulting team in London before returning to the US in 2009.

Aon Hewitt global CEO of Consulting Baljit Dail said Rangecroft will spearhead the firm’s expansion in the Canadian marketplace, with a focus on innovative solutions and superior client service.
