Global consulting firm Capco has in the UK announced two new partners promotions: Paul Trotter and James Arnett. Both Trotter and Arnett, previously Managing Principals at the firm, focus on the financial services industry.
Paul Trotter has more than 15 years of experience in the consulting industry. He started his career at Accenture, where he spent roughly 13 years – in his last role as Director. Beginning 2011 he joined Capco as Managing Principal. At Capco he gained extensive experience in delivering complex sourcing projects for large insurance and banking organisations. Most recently Trotter led a service transformation and integration programme for the retail banking technology unit of a global tier one bank, bringing a standardised and consistent approach to all projects, based on industry best practice.
After graduating in 1999 from the University of Manchester, James Arnett worked in several roles in the IT and consulting industry. Before joining Capco mid-2011, he worked more than 10 years for IBM, Capita, HP and a player in the financial services sector. Over the past years Arnett has gained expertise within the arena of complex business and technology transformation, specialising in mobilising and leading large change programmes across capital markets and banking, specifically in the area of regulatory remediation. Examples of projects include delivering regulatory change across tier one investment banks, implementing strategic transformation programmes and optimising offshore delivery.

“At Capco we’re committed to developing and supporting talented people as demonstrated by the fact that we promoted over 20% of our workforce last year,” says Steve Vinnicombe, CEO of Capco in the UK. “Both Paul and James have extensive practical experience of the strategic and operational challenges that are reshaping financial services and in delivering solutions that make a real difference to our clients. Adding Paul and James to our partner team is testimony to the great work they are delivering and the importance we place on industry experts with a deep understanding of financial services.”
