Consulting & Technology Focus on Geography in H2
As part of the North American recovery and transformation program launched in January 2005, Capgemini’s consulting and technology businesses will be organized by geography effective July 1, with four area directors responsible for sales and delivery in the US, and national leaders for Canada and Mexico. Two vertical industry groups (Telecom Media & Entertainment and Government Solutions) will remain as stand-alone P&L units, but Capgemini is committed to driving profitable growth and simplifying our go-to-market efforts around local geographies is part of that commitment to our clients and employees. Here are some highlights from around the 6 areas:
Lanny Cohen is the East Area Director with 25 years of Capgemini service and industry experience, including the 2003 /2004 chairman of the Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF). Lanny leads the go-to-market efforts across 15 states in the Northeast and Southeast with a focus on driving SAP, transformation consulting, system integration, supply chain and CRM solutions. Lanny’s team will target financial services, insurance, life sciences, manufacturing, consumer products and retail companies.
