Since joining Capgemini in 1990, Porter has held a number of senior management positions within the consulting and technology divisions of the group, most recently as head of technology services for the UK and Ireland.

In his 15 years with the company Porter has led several major client projects, and according to the firm ‘spearheaded’ change management within the group was ‘instrumental’ in developing major strategic alliances with key technology partners.

As head of the region, Porter will be responsible for leading the strategy and delivery of Capgemini’s capabilities in consulting and technology services.

As MD, Porter will aim to build on Capgemini’s strong position in the public sector as well as grow the firm’s private sector business in markets such as financial services, manufacturing, retail and telecoms.

Prior to joining Capgemini, Porter’s career included founding Conder Technology, which was acquired by Capgemini (Hoskyns) in 1990. Porter went on to create Capgemini’s first technology consulting business; leading several public sector IT projects as well as directing the British Steel (Corus) transformational outsourcing contract.

Porter succeeds Clive Williams, who will be retiring to focus on other business interests later this month after 16 years with the company.

Porter said: ‘Clive has been a great leader. I look forward to building on the strength of our people, our sector knowledge and world-class capabilities to lead the company forward into 2005.’ Look out for an exclusive interview with Mark Porter in the March issue of Management Consultancy.
