“We are very pleased to welcome Kevin back to Mercer,” said Mr. Provost, who served as interim Central market leader for ICG prior to Mr. Dent’s appointment. “His proven track record of client service, business development and leadership success will be a true asset as we seek to further enhance our consulting capabilities and grow the ICG business.”
