Aon Hewitt adds to global benefits team

Mr Van Leggelo, who will be based in Paris, joins Aon Hewitt after four years with Axa where he was head of International Group Pensions. He was previously with Dexia Insurance and Pensions Solutions in Luxembourg, having earlier spent three years with Tillinghast-Towers Perrin and 14 years with ING Belgium.

René van Leggelo has both an MBA and a degree in mathematics from Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

Commenting on the appointment, Ian Hinton, head of global Benefits EMEA, said: "René van Leggelo has huge experience in a number of international benefit areas and will contribute greatly to our business and the solutions we can offer to multinational clients both in France and elsewhere. In particular, he brings unrivalled expertise in cross-border pension provision to our team. This is already an area of increasing strength for us and one in which we have seen rising interest over recent months with a number of multi-national companies looking to explore the available options.

"I am therefore very pleased to have recruited René to the team based in our Paris office and I am confident that his understanding and practical knowledge of this developing area will have a considerable impact on our clients. I look forward to working with him."
