Capgemini CEO, Aiman Ezzat, said: “Firstly, the Board and I thank Carole for her unfailing support and I’d like to pay tribute to the valuable contribution that she has made as CFO over the last six years. Carole joined Capgemini when it was a 12 billion Euro company and during her tenure we have not only almost doubled our revenues to 22 billion but have also completed one of the Group’s largest acquisitions with Altran and navigated a global pandemic. Carole has overseen all of this while masterminding the successful transformation of Capgemini’s finance function and continuing to lead from the front in terms of diversity and inclusion. I thank Carole on behalf of the Group and wish her every success in her next chapter."

A trusted and outstanding leader 

Aiman continued: "I welcome the appointment of Nive whose career, both prior to joining Capgemini and during the past 13 years within the Group, has given her broad and valuable experience of our industry. She is a trusted and outstanding leader, whose appointment has the full support of Capgemini’s board of directors. Nive has an exemplary track record in delivering business results, currently as CEO of Capgemini’s Cloud Infrastructure Services. Her proven business acumen, deep knowledge of the Group’s operations and strong grounding in finance mean Nive is well-equipped to take on the role of Group CFO to help drive the next phase of our development."

Leading an award-winning team 

“It’s a privilege to have been appointed Capgemini CFO. I am excited to work with the Group’s leadership and Board to execute on our clear strategy and build on our strong financial footing. I am looking forward to leading the award-winning team to further enable the growth, the margin expansion, and the cash discipline of Capgemini,” commented Nive.

“It has been an honor to work with Capgemini over the last exceptional 6 years. I am proud of what we achieved with the management team and with my team, and know that Nive will be able to count on their excellence and professionalism to ensure the Group goes from strength to strength,” commented Carole.
