Capco, the global technology and management consultancy, has appointed Alex Ross-Wilson as a new Partner with responsibility for the company’s UK banking practice, based in London.
Alex brings a broad set of strategic and business focused skills in core banking and credit services, and has extensive experience in the shaping and successful implementation of complex delivery programmes and establishing multi-year application outsource deals. He joins Capco from HSBC, where he was a Senior Strategic Change Director in Group Transformation.
Mike Ethelston, Capco UK Managing Partner, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Alex to the UK Partner team. His domain knowledge and technical expertise, alongside his experience in delivering large integration and transformation projects for many of the UK’s leading banks, will be key as we look to grow our banking practice further. Alex’s appointment underlines Capco’s commitment to playing a central role in driving change and innovation in the UK banking sector and to ensuring UK banks can continue to offer attractive products and engaging customer experiences over the coming decade.”
Alex Ross-Wilson said: “I am looking forward to growing Capco’s core banking and lending capabilities to complement our existing strengths around payments. The UK banking sector is under tremendous pressure to deliver greater digitization and innovation, while at the same time dealing with reduced income from their traditional services. This presents a great opportunity to bring real value to our clients through a strong customer and product led approach that draws upon Capco’s deep capabilities in digital, data and engineering.”
Prior to HSBC, Alex’s career in consulting includes 20 years at Accenture, predominantly aligned to the Financial Services operating group. This included a decade as a Managing Director within Accenture’s Technology Consulting business, during which time he led the Accenture UK & Ireland Financial Services Liquid Delivery capability.
