After a long and impressive career in benefits outsourcing, Mary Rogovin will retire from Hewitt effective January 2010. Mary began her career in the early 1980s with Hazlehurst & Associates (a predecessor to Northern Trust Retirement Consulting), which Hewitt acquired in 2003. With a degree in Applied Mathematics from Georgia Tech, she aspired to be a pension actuary. But, in the fall of 1983, she took a temporary assignment on Hazlehurst's newly formed Defined Contribution recordkeeping team and never looked back. Since then, Mary worked in nearly every aspect of benefits outsourcing. For the past six years, she was a Benefits Delivery Manager in Hewitt's Atlanta office. Most recently, she served as the Defined Contribution Enterprise (DCE) leader. She made great strides in developing an effective implementation and ongoing delivery approach for DC plans in the middle market. Mary is looking forward to this next chapter in her life. She plans to teach knitting classes and looks forward to watching her daughter play in her last season of high school varsity tennis.
It has been especially fun to get so many "best wishes" and "congratulations" messages. many from folks I've never met in person, and only worked with a few times. and I'm sure the novelty will wear off soon, but for now, I'm also enjoying the "did you knit that?" whenever I wear a sweater (today I wore my josephine top, so I could honestly answer "yes" :-)
