Capco says that 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.
The firm views the Indian market as a key component of its growth agenda. Ramchandran's new role focuses on growing Capco's offshore offering across its client portfolio and further adapting its global delivery model.
Also, he will focus 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."
Ramchandran joins Capco from Accenture, where he spent the last 15 years of his career, most recently in leadership roles in the UK and Germany.
"This is a tremendous time to be joining one of the world's fastest-growing professional services firms," said Neil Ramchandran.
"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."
