BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Hewitt names HR outsourcing, client execs


LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.—Hewitt Associates Inc. has named a new president of its human resources outsourcing business, filling a 10-month-old vacancy in its biggest revenue-producing unit.

Jay Rising, 50, will join Lincolnshire, Ill.-based Hewitt next month as HR outsourcing president. Most recently, he was president of Bozeman, Mont.-based software company RightNow Technologies Inc.

Mr. Rising succeeds Julie Gordon, who has been acting president of HR outsourcing since last June following the resignation of Bryan Doyle. Mr. Doyle resigned following a slowdown in Hewitt's HR outsourcing business, which generates about 70% of Hewitt's revenues.

Ms. Gordon will become president of client and market leadership, a new post in which she will direct building and sustaining client relationships, a Hewitt spokeswoman said.

Additionally, Hewitt has named Steve Fein to the new position of sales and product strategy in its outsourcing unit. Most recently, Mr. Fein was a senior outsourcing executive at Mercer Human Resource Consulting. Earlier, he was a practice leader in Hewitt's flexible benefit plan consulting practice.
