In addition, Cyril Garcia, previously strategy and transformation director for the Capgemini Group, takes over CC France. In his former role, Cyril initiated the development of new business models within the Group, such as the pay-as-you-use billing, and contributed to Capgemini’s expansion in emerging markets.
