Restructure at Cap Gemini Follows EY Acquisition
Cap Gemini has announced its plans to restructure its operations based on the recent acquisition of the Ernst & Young Consulting Group.
First on the table is a new brand for the European company, and will most likely be a hybrid of both company names. However, the new name only can be used for four years under the rights in the agreement.
Also being changed is the company's governance structure, moving from a four-man directorate and a supervisory committee to a board of 11 members, including directors and an executive committee. The previous structure was considered to be a 'German' one, and put in place based on advice from investor Daimler Benz.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
