Wipro appoints Anne-Marie Rowland as CEO of consultancy arm, Capco

East Brunswick-based Wipro, a technology services and consulting company, announced that Anne-Marie Rowland has been appointed as CEO of its consultancy arm, Capco. Rowland is currently managing partner of Capco’s business in the U.K. and Ireland and a member of Capco’s global leadership team. She will take on the CEO role effective April 1.

As CEO of Capco, Rowland will report to Wipro CEO and Managing Director Thierry Delaporte and will become a member of Wipro’s Executive Committee.

Lance Levy, who has led Capco as CEO for close to a decade, will take on a new role as strategic adviser and continue to support Capco’s strategic direction and Wipro’s overall consulting strategy.

“Lance has provided unmatched leadership to Capco for over a decade. Under his guidance, Capco has differentiated itself as an industry-leading full-service transformation consultancy, and become a key growth pillar for Wipro,” Delaporte said. “I’m glad to announce Lance’s continued support as strategic adviser, helping Annie and Capco’s business through a carefully planned transition. Annie has a deep understanding of Capco, our clients, teams and the consulting industry. I’m proud to welcome Annie to lead Capco into the future, to its next phase of growth.”

Rowland joined Capco 14 years ago and has deep consulting expertise in business change management, innovation and transformation.

Since joining Capco, Rowland has played a pivotal role in the growth of Capco’s business through a series of executive roles, having served on the Capco global leadership team for several years in a number of capacities, including as global head of Capco’s consulting and transformation practice, global client partner for a number of large financial institutions, executive sponsor of Women@Capco and, most recently, as the managing partner for Capco’s U.K. and Ireland business.

Commenting on the appointment, Levy said, “Capco is an incredibly special business, and I am honored to have led the company, and very grateful to all of those who have played such an important part in the company’s founding and growth, and especially our people, who work tirelessly in fulfilling our commitment to innovation and transformational outcomes for our clients.

Capco, acquired by Wipro in 2021, has been a trusted client adviser and industry player for over 25 years, evolving from a niche service provider to become the world’s largest independent financial services management consultancy. Capco combines deep domain expertise, a disruptive mindset and a proven track record of delivering lasting value to solve clients’ most complex transformational challenges.

“I am delighted about the opportunity to lead Capco into the next phase of its journey,” Rowland said. “As a longtime Capco veteran, I am committed to preserving all that makes Capco special: our client relationships, our unique and authentic culture and our focus on innovation and creativity.”
