Accenture Names Senior Executive in Brazil as Managing Director of LATAM

Accenture has named Leonardo Framil, the company’s senior executive in Brazil, as its managing director responsible for overseeing operations in Latin America. Framil, who has been with the outsourcer for the past 24 years, succeeds Roger Ingold, who was at the helm since 2004.
Framil has long been overseeing the company’s financial services unit in the region. “In his new role, he has primary responsibility for supporting and developing Accenture’s business and operations in Brazil and across Latin America, including developing and executing the business strategy and positioning the company for  future growth,” said Accenture in a statement.
Framil led Accenture’s financial services practice in Brazil from 2005 to 2011, during which time the unit acquired many new clients and expanded into new markets.
Over the past decade, he has made friends in Latin America’s banking, insurance, and capital markets sectors, helping the company’s financial practices segment increase its revenue four fold. In 2013, he led the company’s acquisition of Vivere, a mortgage-processing technology company, helping position Accenture as a leading mortgage BPO provider in Brazil.
“Leonardo has made significant contributions to Accenture in Brazil, including in his role as the country’s financial services lead,” said Gianfranco Casati, Accenture’s group chief executive of growth markets.
Framil holds a graduate degree in telecommunications engineering from Universidade Federal Fluminense and a master’s degree in finance from IBMEC (Instituto Brasileiro de Mercado de Capitais), both located in Rio de Janeiro.
“I am excited to lead the highly skilled and talented people of Accenture Brazil and Latin America, while at the same time partnering with clients to help them transform their businesses to capitalize on the market opportunities in Brazil, throughout Latin America and globally,” said Leonardo Framil.
Accenture has employed thousands of people in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin America. Last year, it snatched up Brazilian digital agency AD.Dialeto to bolster the operation of its digital arm Accenture Interactive. In February, it acquired a local analytics company Gapso, and, then in June, announced plans to hire more than a thousand technology professionals for its delivery center in Recife, Brazil.
Accenture’s industry verticals in the region include finance, health, telecommunications, consumer goods, and natural resources.
