Capco, a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, has appointed Tara Brady as a Partner and member of the European management team. Tara will be responsible for helping further expand Capco’s strategic financial services consulting business across Europe including key markets such as the United Kingdom, France and Germany.
Peter Schurau, CEO Europe, Capco: “As a result of market demand, we have enjoyed healthy growth levels consistently above consulting industry averages. We anticipate building on this strong platform throughout 2012 and beyond. Tara has extensive expertise in managing financial services business transformation projects making him well placed to lead our development efforts throughout Europe. He is an advocate for continuously improving top-line expansion as well as best serving client needs. We welcome Tara to Capco and the fresh approach he bring to the business.”
Tara Brady, Partner, Capco: “Financial institutions are faced with increasing regulation, risk mitigation requirements and marketplace uncertainty and they need the time and resources to concentrate on these core business issues. Outsourcing back office operations leaves these firms to focus on their core business, while Capco can help better manage business processes.”
Tara adds: “Capco’s expertise in successfully dealing with the business transformation process is one of the many reasons I was attracted to the company. As a specialist financial services consultancy, Capco has the agility and speed to manage these challenges head on. It is also supported by large-scale expertise and knowledge within the business.”
Tara has more than 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry across retail banking and insurance outsourcing contracts and acquisitions. Before joining Capco, he was CEO of Calyx Group, a mid-sized IT provider of infrastructure and carrier services. Prior to this role, Tara was a member of the group board of management and CEO (International) at Getronics (KPN) and also director of financial services at what is now Logica. He has previously served as visiting professor of City University business school now known as Cass Business School and has authored the Financial Times bestseller ‘Rules of the Game’.
