Meet Our Team

At Mercer, we’ve been caring about people for a long time. For 40 years, our mission has been to help our clients improve the health, wealth and careers of their employees.

We created Mercer Marketplace 365 to give employees a health and benefits experience unlike anything they’ve had before — one that puts the power of choice and information in the palm of their hands so they can significantly improve the quality and cost of their health care and benefits.

The Mercer Marketplace 365 team is dedicated to helping your employees live healthier lives, simplify the benefits experience and save you both a lot of money.

Our History

From the beginning, we've been in the business of putting people's futures first. In 1945, William M. Mercer, Ltd, began in Canada and grew to become a premier provider of actuarial and benefits consulting services. Acquired by Marsh & McLennan Companies in 1959 and merged with its own employee benefits department, the firm expanded through growth and acquisition to become a global leader in health, retirement, investments and talent. Even as times have changed and our firm has evolved, our core purpose has remained clear: We make a positive difference in people's lives. For generations, clients have counted on us to provide actionable insights and forward-thinking solutions, and as our global reach and resources have expanded, so have our capabilities. Today, Mercer works with clients in 140 markets around the world, helping them continue to advance the health, wealth and performance of their most vital asset - their people.
