Capgemini Names Maurizio Mondani as Head of Brazilian Operations

French outsourcing firm Capgemini has asked its European executive Maurizio Mondani to lead the company’s operation in Brazil. Mondani replaces Paulo Marcelo, who has been heading the company in Brazil for the past two years.
Walter Cappilati, Capgemini’s Latin America head, has stated that he is confident that Mondani would accelerate the company’s growth in the South American country. “He is an experienced manager and good leader, I have great confidence in him,” Cappilati said. He will bolster the company’s application and infrastructure services in Brazil.”
Mondani has been with Capgemini for more than a decade, overseeing the company’s operation in Eastern Europe until recently. Over the years, he held several positions in the company, including head of consulting services, industry segment manager, and sales leader.
The French outsourcer is one of the biggest IT services companies in Brazil, where it has employed 8,500 people and serves more than 200 customers, including the likes of Unilever, Syngenta, Avon, and Nokia Siemens.
Earlier in April, Capgemini launched a data center in Campinas, a city in the state of Sao Paulo, saying it wants to focus on cloud computing services. Reports say demand is growing for its cloud, particularly after it signed partnership deals with Amazon and EMC for the cloud service.
In his recent call with analysts, Paul Hermelin, chairman and chief executive officer of the company, blamed ‘resale business’ in Brazil for the company’s shrinking revenue in Latin America.
