Capco has appointed former PWC partner Mark Webster to head up its corporate banking and payments practice in North America.
Webster is charged with driving the company's bid to diversify its client reach from capital markets to private client, asset management and corporate banking services. The position is a new one with Capco in the US, replicating a role already undertaken in the UK by Andrew Stewart.
He says much of the division's focus will be on industry-wide infrastructure efforts to build new cross-border payments systems.
He will report to Bill Irving, president of Capco.
Webster was formerly a partner in PricewaterhouseCooper’s global financial services consulting practice and co-led the bank operations consulting practice.
