Xavier Hochet will be supported by Ken Toombs, CEO of Capgemini Consulting North America, who becomes deputy CEO of Capgemini Consulting. In addition, Cyril Garcia, previously strategy and transformation director for the Capgemini Group, takes over CC France. In his former role, Cyril initiated the development of new business models within the Group, such as the pay-as-you-use billing, and contributed to Capgemini’s expansion in emerging markets.
 
Paul Hermelin, Chairman and CEO of the Capgemini Group, said: “I am counting on the managerial talent and experience of Xavier Hochet to further strengthen the role of consulting within the Group, and reinforce its synergies with the other businesses. With regards to Pierre-Yves Cros, the driving force of ‘digital transformation’ – now the spearhead of Capgemini Consulting – his in-depth knowledge of Capgemini and his role in taking forward its strategic developments will be valuable assets.”
