Consulting, technology and outsourcing services company, Capgemini, has named Nicolas Aidoud as its A/NZ CEO.
Aidoud succeeds Deepak Nangia, who will move to take on the role of chief customer officer for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and assist the executive chairman in expanding Capgemini’s footprint in this region.
Prior to this appointment, Aidoud served as CEO for Prosodie-Capgemini, a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, for three years.
As CEO of Prosodie-Capgemini from 2013 to 2015, Aidoud led the commercial synergies with the group and was instrumental in boosting Prosodie-Capgemini’s international development. More recently, he was also responsible for the digital customer experience business in Europe.
Aidoud has a long-standing employment with the group. Before becoming the CEO of Prosodie-Capgemini, he was in charge of its international development for almost a year.
He also was the new service offerings director at Capgemini in Paris for more than two years, at Carat as its general director for almost two years, and at Capgemini Consulting as its associate director for nine years.
Capgemini Asia-Pacific and Middle East CEO, Paul Thorley, said Aidoud has demonstrated a track record of strong leadership and deep industry knowledge to lead Capgemini A/NZ into the future.
“We are delighted to announce Nicolas’ appointment to lead Capgemini A/NZ into the next phase of continued transformation and growth as we enter into an increasingly digital and Cloud enabled market.
“With Deepak’s leadership, we have built strong foundations in driving our portfolio growth and we thank Deepak for his many contributions in positioning Capgemini as a global leader in technology services and business transformation in the A/NZ market,” he said.
Aidoud added that he is excited to lead Capgemini in accelerating its growth in the region.
“In an environment where most of the business transformations are driven by IT innovation, we will be drawing on our unrivalled mix of global capabilities and deep region expertise to drive greater impact for our clients,” he said.
