Capgemini UK makes senior appointment

Simmons joins Capgemini from Atos Consulting where he led the Financial Management practice and headed Finance and Operations. He brings over 25 years of professional experience across a wide range of disciplines and sectors from his career in Atos Consulting and KPMG, with particular expertise in finance transformation, performance management, shared services, and organisational restructuring.

Simmons trained and qualified as an accountant with KPMG, becoming a partner in 1996. He had previously acted as KPMG's Director of PFI and Head of Utilities before joining Atos Consulting in 2002. He has been focused more recently on advising clients in the public and private sectors on corporate services efficiency, management reporting strategies and shared services.

Simmons said: "I am delighted to be joining Capgemini Consulting at such an exciting time in its development. The consulting market is highly competitive, particularly in the finance arena with the re-entry of the accounting firms. But I believe Capgemini has the ambition, the people and the ethos to create a distinctive force based on its emphasis on collaboration. With the pace of change in capital markets, the competitive landscape and in regulation, the way that organisations measure, forecast and protect value is under intense scrutiny. My role is to help CFOs to respond to these pressures, drawing on Capgemini's consulting and technology capabilities to achieve best practice."

Tom Blacksell, Head of Capgemini Consulting UK, said: "I am pleased to welcome Kevin to the Capgemini Consulting team. His appointment strengthens our Finance and Employee Transformation practice and his broad range of experience will be valuable right across our team."
