Marsh & McLennan Companies Inc. is putting a veteran of corporate turbulence in charge of its Mercer Human Resource Consulting unit.
Marsh & McLennan has promoted M. Michele Burns to succeed Michael Caulfield as chairman of Mercer.
Caulfield is retiring, Marsh & McLennan says.
Burns began working for Marsh & McLennan as a chief financial officer in March.
Before that, Burns was the CFO and chief restructuring officer at Mirant Corp., Atlanta, a power-generating company that filed for bankruptcy court protection in 2003.
