After completion of the program, he was a client advisor and environmental practice leader with the company.

O’Tousa has spent more than 17 years at Mercer Human Resource Consulting, where she served as the Bay Area Health & Group Benefits Practice Leader, consulting with employers on group health, absence management and disability program issues. Prior to that, she worked as director of financial services at the Hospital Council of Northern California and as a senior staff specialist at the Illinois Health Finance Authority.

Beceiro joins the firm as account executive with 20 years experience in the group benefits practice, having worked previously for another large San Diego brokerage firm, as well as for Blue Cross of California. He has worked with employers across all business sectors including life sciences, technology, public sector and non-profits.
