When consuming the web service ensure that the Person class is available in the Project the web service is being consumed. In this scenario the proxy class generated to access the web service should reuse the Person class present within the application.

This is generally the problem with code to wsdl approach, is Person Class the same imported in all those other classes?

If you had done WSDL first approach then this might have never a raised.
