Information technology (IT) services company Wipro on Wednesday said it has appointed Suzanne Dann as the senior vice president (SVP) and sector head for capital markets and insurance for its North America region operations. 

The new executive will be based in New Jersey and report to Angan Guha, CEO of Wipro’s Americas 2 market unit, as per as statement. 

Dann has joined Wipro from Avanade, an Accenture and Microsoft joint venture, where she served as a corporate vice president and general manager, focussing on northeast United States. 

"Suzanne powered double-digit growth for this business over the past three years. She was also the North American Financial Services Executive Sponsor at Avanade, where she led go-to-market initiatives nationally,” Wipro said in the statement. 

Dann supported multiple marquee clients in the banking, capital markets and insurance sectors; in application services, cloud advisory, managed services and broader experience-led digital transformation work. 

Additionally, she led Avanade’s global taskforce for race and inclusion, reporting to the CEO.  

Prior to Avanade, Suzanne was a vice president and global client director with IBM, where she spent the bulk of her career.  

Suzanne graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor of science in engineering.  

“I am delighted to welcome Suzanne Dann to the Americas leadership team. Her experience in leading global teams, expertise with digital transformation, and insight into the financial services industry will enable our clients to succeed, and also drive our growth ambitions in the capital markets and insurance sector,” Guha said. 

Late last month, Wipro told employees that it appointed Subha Tatavarti as its chief technology officer, inducting the former PayPal executive into a male-dominant CXO club across top IT services firms in the country.  

Earlier in March, the Bengaluru based company, the country’s fourth largest IT services exporter, announced its largest ever acquisition. It is set to acquire London based Capco, inclusive of holding companies Cardinal US Holdings and Cardinal Foreign Holdings and its Indian subsidiary Capco Technologies, in a $1.45 billion all-cash transaction.   

Over the last two months, the Infosys rival has gone about strengthening its top deck across international markets of Brazil, Germany, Austria, Japan, Southern Europe, Switzerland, as well as the whole of Europe.
