Capco, the global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services (FS) industry, announced the appointment of Chintu (Neil) Ramchandran as CEO for its offshore operations, based in Bangalore, India.
As demand for offshore delivery of consulting engagements continues, the FS industry is also seeing an evolution in the scale and complexity of engagements delivered using a global delivery model. Capco views the Indian market as a key component of its continued growth agenda. Neil's role focuses on growing Capco's offshore offering across its client portfolio and further adapting its global delivery model. Neil is also focused on expanding the team's capabilities in India and on putting in place strong career development programmes for offshore based talent - ensuring Capco is the employer of choice in India for those seeking a role in FS consulting.
"Neil brings considerable experience in global consultancy delivery using offshore-based resources," Rob Heyvaert, Capco founder and CEO said. "His addition to our senior management team positions Capco even more strongly to seize the opportunity to help clients execute on their FS change initiatives - whether these be in consulting, outsourcing or transformational in nature."
Neil joins Capco from Accenture, where he spent the last 15 years of his career, most recently in leadership roles based in the UK and Germany. Neil has a strong mix of both professional services and financial services industry expertise, including time working for a major UK based bank.
"This is a tremendous time to be joining one of the world's fastest-growing professional services firms," said Neil Ramchandran, Capco Partner. "Capco has a strong heritage in consistently delivering high-quality, high-impact complex engagements across financial services through its global delivery model. My role at Capco provides me with the opportunity to return to my Indian roots and to work with some of the industry's highly regarded technology professionals."
