Mercer has appointed senior executive Paul Giles to the role of senior client manager, responsible for large industry and public sector clients.

With over two decades of experience across financial services, peak bodies, professional services and government, Giles joined Mercer at a partner level from the Link Group where he was mostly recently general manager, legislation and regulatory reform.

Giles had worked in government for Senators Arthur Sinodinos and Amanda Vanstone, and for the Insurance Council of Australia as general manager government and stakeholder relations.

Jo-Anne Block, Mercer’s client management leader for industry and public sector, said clients would benefit from the mix of superannuation, policy, government and leadership expertise Giles brought.

“The superannuation sector is experiencing a time of significant change, with a raft of regulatory and legislative changes underway including Protecting Your Super and Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR),” Bloch said.

“Now more than ever, we have a much more impactful role to play as a partner to trustees.”

“Paul’s strong knowledge of the issues faced by industry and public sector funds, as well as his expertise at a policy and regulatory level, will help clients cut through the complexity to best serve their members.”
