Aimie worked for more than 20 years at Accenture, holding a series of senior positions, including UKI chief innovation officer. She is a non-executive director of Learning Technologies Group.

She said: “Capita is at a really exciting stage of its transformation, so this is a great time to come on board.

“We are also in the midst of a new age in customer management, with advances in automation, AI and data analytics, providing opportunities to serve customers with new insights. 

“I’m passionate about helping develop and deliver these innovations for Capita’s clients, while also building on the expertise and outstanding service already being delivered by the customer management team.”

Chantal joins from Willis Towers Watson, where she was managing director and head of Human Capital and Benefits, Western Europe.

She said: “I am excited to be joining Capita and to have the opportunity to lead the company’s People Solutions division at this transformative moment.

“Capita offers an incredible range of human resources tools and capabilities to more than 6,500 private and public sector clients.

“I look forward to deepening Capita’s relationships with its existing HR clients and to helping them prepare for the challenges of the future of work.”

“We are delighted that two such highly respected and experienced figures as Aimie and Chantal have chosen to join Capita. They are joining the company in the second year of a multi-year transformation, and I am confident Aimie and Chantal possess the skills to help deliver the next phase of Capita’s growth. I look forward very much to working with them.” Jon Lewis, Chief Executive Officer at Capita
