Christopher Geldard promoted to global executive management team
Consultancy firm Capco has promoted Christopher Geldard to lead its global banking practice.
Geldard, currently a partner based in London, will also join Capco's global executive management team.
The role will see Geldard leading the firm's efforts in the development and positioning of products for the retail, commercial and wealth segments, covering digital, payments, risk and regulation and core processing industrialisation.
The firm said its range of products would support its aim of repositioning itself from being focused on cost reduction and balance sheet shrinkage to aiding client-centric growth.
Geldard said: “Capco has significant banking expertise, and is currently working with many global banks to define their future and better serve their evolving client segments.
“Our goal is to produce new and leading-edge responses to the challenges of customer engagement, loyalty and revenue growth. I look forward to working with our industry leading team to support the evolution of our clients’ customer experience, whilst continuing to expand Capco’s business across banking.”
Geldard has over two decade's experience in financial services technology, having started his career with IBM in the early 90's. He joined Capco from Accenture, where he was a senior partner.
Rob Heyvaert, founder, chairman and CEO of Capco, said: “Capco is proud to have hired someone of Christopher’s calibre. His profile in the banking industry and established track record of success globally signals Capco’s ongoing commitment to helping our banking clients as they prepare for a new era of customer experience and service.”
