Christopher Geldard said, “I am privileged to lead Capco’s Global Banking practice, at a time when there is an imperative to create and deliver new propositions across the banking value chain.”

Geldard and his team will focus on developing and positioning market-differentiated value propositions in omni-channel, digital, payments, risk and regulation and core processing industrialisation for the retail, commercial and wealth segments. The portfolio of propositions ensure Capco is well positioned to support banking clients as its agenda evolves from being heavily focused on cost reduction and balance sheet shrinkage to an agenda that is firmly focused on client centric growth.

Geldard added, “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. I am also very excited that, as a part of FIS, Capco is able to leverage FIS best-in-class, innovative products and solutions to support our client delivery.”

Geldard was formerly a senior partner at Accenture. He has extensive experience advising global financial institutions through multiple engagements, ranging from a consumer-value proposition redesign through to major IT/operations restructuring programmes. He combines strategic insight with a deep grounding in the technology environment. He started his career at IBM in 1992, as a systems engineer in the core banking and payments arena.

Rob Heyvaert, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Capco and Corporate Executive Vice-President of FIS 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.”
