United States, New York

Mercer's Barbara Marder, Senior Partner and Digital Tools Leader, was recently named one of Consulting® magazine’s Top 25 Consultants 2017. For the last two years, Barb led a team in Mercer’s Innovation Hub, focused on disruptive solutions in recruiting and talent acquisition. Last year, her team launched Mercer Match, a job-matching and career advice app that uses gamification, neuroscience and machine learning to pre-qualify candidates and match them to sales and customer service roles. Based in Baltimore, Ms. Marder began her 30-year career with Mercer as an actuary in the firm’s Wealth business and since then has held a variety of leadership roles across the firm, including the International Consulting Group and the Global Mobility business. 

"We are so proud of the work Barb has done to earn her recognition as a Top 25 Consultant," said Ilya Bonic, President of Mercer’s Career business. "Mercer strives to be an industry leader in HR technology and digital transformation, and Barb’s leadership has been integral to our success in building out these capabilities. Barb has never hesitated to raise her hand for opportunities and lead the way in helping Mercer move our business into new and innovative areas. This award is extraordinarily well-deserved.” 

Consulting will honor the Top 25 recipients, including Ms. Marder, at a gala awards dinner at the Mandarin Oriental in New York on June 15. To learn more about Barbara Marder and the work she has done with Mercer, please visit (free subscription required).
