He has extensive experience in affinity marketing, direct-to-consumer channels, and individual insurance products,” said David Rahill, President of Mercer’s Health & Benefits Business.

“We’re pleased to have Mike join the Mercer team. He’ll be instrumental in helping to ensure that our direct-to-consumer businesses operate with a continued strong emphasis on meeting the needs of our clients’ employees and family members,” said Pat Milligan, President, North America Region.

Mr. Ross will be based in Urbandale, Iowa, and report jointly to Mr. Rahill and Ms. Milligan.
