New York, September 18, 2017 – Capgemini, a global leader in technology, consulting and outsourcing services, has expanded its capital markets technology capabilities with the hiring of Ziad Chammaa and Ferreol de Naurois, the former founders of Iridium Consulting, a provider of consulting and technology expertise for financial institutions with a unique focus on capital markets. By incorporating this key talent into its Financial Services business, Capgemini has enhanced its capabilities in trading solutions.

The hires highlight Capgemini’s commitment to capital markets trading technology and deepen the company’s focus on risk and regulatory solutions for its capital markets clients. Further, the company will benefit by leveraging their strong personal relationships with leading providers of integrated trading, risk and processing solutions in the treasury and capital markets industry.

“We have worked with Ziad and Ferreol for many years as collaborators in the capital markets space, and we see their addition to the Capgemini team as a unique opportunity to best leverage our resources for our capital markets clients,” said Nilesh Vaidya, Executive Vice President of Banking and Capital Markets, Capgemini. “Together, we will work with our clients to select and implement efficient front-to-back, cross-asset trading solutions that push innovation and create market-leading positions.”

During their time as collaborators, Capgemini and Iridium established numerous relationships with leading vendors and FinTech companies, and worked together to jointly develop bespoke software solutions for global capital markets firms. The addition of Ziad and Ferreol to the Capgemini team further enhances its ability to support clients’ business transformation initiatives toward regulatory compliance and cost reduction through automation, while capturing new market opportunities.

Ziad Chammaa said, “Both Ferreol de Naurois and I are confident about the potential to boost benefits to Capgemini’s client base by officially joining Capgemini’s Financial Services team. Our long passion for innovation compels us to take part in the next generation of trading technology. Our new roles with Capgemini will allow us to leverage our experience to drive digital transformation for the global capital markets industry by applying new technologies from start-ups and FinTech companies.”
