Bill Cook has been appointed to lead Capgemini Consulting in the UK. Capgemini Consulting, the global strategy and transformation consultancy, is part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services. Bill, who moves to his new post this month, will lead one of the UK’s largest teams of strategy and management consultants, with a strong reputation for delivering significant transformation from strategy to execution across the private and public sectors.

Bill will lead a team that is helping leading organisations respond to the challenges of the new digital economy. Digitisation can extend the reach of organisations, improve management decisions, and speed the development of new products and services. At the same time, the excessively rapid adoption of technologies can disrupt traditional business models. Capgemini Consulting works in partnership with clients to deliver Digital Transformation, with a concrete strategy to harness its strengths and mitigate its challenges.

Bill brings a strong track record in consulting to clients. He previously worked at Ernst & Young, where his consulting career started in 1988, progressing to partner. He also brings extensive senior management experience from roles at Capgemini in the UK, including head of sales, commercial director and chief financial officer. Tom Blacksell, who currently leads the Capgemini Consulting team in the UK, moves to take up an international role as Global Head of Market Development at Capgemini Consulting.

Pierre-Yves Cros, Global CEO of Capgemini Consulting, said: ‘These are exciting times for Capgemini Consulting as we spearhead the response to digital disruptions and innovations through Digital Transformation. In the UK we have a talented and ambitious team of consultants, and I am sure that with Bill’s proven leadership experience, the team will go from strength-to-strength.’
