Hewitt Associates in India

Donald Glade posts about the history of Hewitt Associates which he says grew organically for a long time and only recently engaged in M&A.

In fact, in India their entry was through a joint venture with an Indian HR consulting firm called Noble House, which became Noble & Hewitt and later Hewitt Associates. This happened in 1998 and much before Hewitt's other acquisitions started in 2002 in other parts of the world. The bio of Sumer Datta HRO Leader of Asia shows Hewitt's entry into the Indian market. Of course, India is quite central to Hewitt's HRO practice also.
