Capco, a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry today announced the promotions of Paul Trotter and James Arnett to Partner.
Paul and James, both previously Managing Principals, add further depth and experience to the partner team in Capco’s UK practice which covers the breadth of the financial services industry including banking, capital markets, insurance, wealth and investment management, finance, risk and compliance and technology services.
Paul has extensive experience in delivering complex sourcing projects for large insurance and banking organisations. Most recently he led a service transformation and integration programme for the retail banking technology unit of a global tier one bank, bringing a standardised and consistent approach to all projects, based on industry best practice.
James has particular expertise within the arena of complex business and technology transformation, specialising in mobilising and leading large change programmes across capital markets and banking, specifically in the area of regulatory remediation. He has focused on delivering immediate regulatory change across multiple tier one investment banks, whilst shaping strategic transformation programmes with focus on reducing operating costs and increasing speed to market, supported through global sourcing and by optimising offshore delivery.
“At Capco we’re committed to developing and supporting talented people as demonstrated by the fact that we promoted over 20 per cent of our workforce last year,” said Steve Vinnicombe, UK CEO. “Both Paul and James have extensive practical experience of the strategic and operational challenges that are reshaping financial services and in delivering solutions that make a real difference to our clients. Adding Paul and James to our partner team is testimony to the great work they are delivering and the importance we place on industry experts with a deep understanding of financial services.”
