Innovation is driven by the need to adapt to new business models, transform business processes and enhance delivery execution.
With a dedicated focus on financial services, FIS and Capco have been committed to serving this market and partnering with clients during this transformative stage.
Prior to joining FIS, Hains spent nearly 10 years in senior executive leadership roles at CSC, a global information technology organization, most recently as president of CSC International with responsibilities for the development of CSC business in EMEA, Asia and Australia regions. At CSC, his extensive experience with large global and multi-national organizations led to the acquisition and establishment of key U.K. government contracts and the establishment of CSC's integrated consulting and systems integration delivery model across the United Kingdom. Prior to joining CSC, Hains acquired nearly 20 years' experience in a range of senior technology, strategy and management consulting roles with a focus on creating issues-based, C-level solutions.
