Capgemini appoints new head of financial services arm

Thierry Delaporte given CEO role at outsourcing firm's financial services unit

Article comments

Capgemini has appointed Thierry Delaporte as chief executive officer for the consulting firm's global financial services business, effective immediately.

Delaporte, who has been employed at the firm for 17 years, will be become head of the global Financial Services Business Unit,  taking over from Aiman Ezzat, who became chief financial officer at the end of 2012.

Delaporte has previously been employed as a chief financial officer and chief operating officer in a number of areas across Capgemini Group's business, and was head of sales at the Application Services One division from 2011.  Delaporte first joined the firm in 1995, employed as a Group Internal Auditor at Capgemini's professional services subsidiary Sogeti. 

Delaporte commented,"I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to continue this growth and expansion and to help Capgemini become the ‘Leader for Leaders’ in the financial services industry, the largest industry sector for IT services companies.”

The Global Financial Services Business Unit provides the financial sector with outsourcing and consulting services, working with hundreds of banks, insurers and capital market companies worldwide.

Capgemini recently announced that it has been handed a five year contract to provide Direct Line with IT services and support, beginning with the migration of the insurance company's systems following its divestment from Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

The company appointed its first chief digital officer in November, hiring Dr Cliff Evans to assist in reaping the benefits from new opportunities arising from digital, online, social media and mobile technologies.
