Mercer adds Lynn Esenwine to its financial strategy group


Mercer chose pension specialist Lynn Esenwine. In anticipation of the expansion of the retirement risk transfer market in the United States, the firm calls on the expertise of Esenwine to support its clients with, among other things, buyback operations, investment strategies and risk management.

Prior to joining the global HR consulting firm, Esenwine worked for MassMutual Financial Group as vice president of pension buyback, where she started mid-term last year. Previously, between 2002 and 2015, Esenwine worked at Prudential Retirement. In her last role with the company, Esenwine served as Vice President of the Mid-Market Pension Risk Transfer Unit. Previous positions include the role of Director of Sales, in the firm’s tax-exempt practice, and Actuarial Analyst in its pricing and funding practice. In 2001, she began her career with the consulting firm Towers Perrin (now Willis Towers Watson) as an actuarial analyst.

Lynn Esenwine holds a Bachelor of Science in Actuarial, Mathematics and Business Logistics from Penn State University and an Executive Master of Business Administration from the University of Connecticut.

Esenwine joins Mercer as a Senior Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) Consultant in the Company’s Financial Strategy Group (FSG). In her new role, she will use her 15 years of experience to facilitate company buyout operations, coordinate investment strategies and risk management, as well as drive innovation in market solutions. The addition is part of Mercer’s expansion into the PRT segment, with the growth expected in the years to come.

Richard McEvoy, Director of FSG, comments: “Lynn has made an impact at the industry level by helping to move the PRT business forward in recent years through her focus, energy and creativity. We are delighted that she is joining our Mercer team. Given the nature of Lynn’s past roles with insurers, her knowledge and transaction experience will help Mercer improve execution security for our clients and keep their employees safe.
