IT and outsourcing company Capgemini has promoted Jane Bevan to the position of UK and Ireland general counsel following the shock departure of Barry Wong. Capgemini declined to comment on the reasons for Wong’s departure and Wong could not be reached for comment. Bevan joined Capgemini in July 2000 from Field Fisher Waterhouse. She was Wong’s deputy and will now report to UK chief financial officer Christine Hodgson. She said she planned to grow the legal team and had no plans to review the legal panel.
