From a two-bedroomed apartment to a global leader in 50 years â€“ Capgemini, the story of a unique start-up
Serge Kampf founded Capgemini in 1967. A man ahead of his time,
Kampf was quick to realize the role IT would play in the business world in the years to come. He was the first to combine technical and organizational consulting with customer proximity. His vision helped him successfully transform his business into one of the worldâ€™s first full range IT services companies.
A message from Paul Hermelin, Chairman and CEO of Capgemini Group
Serge Kampf was inspirational at every turning point in the Capgemini adventure. In 1967, while launching Capgemini in Grenoble, he was among the first to grasp what was required of a
service provider to succeed in the new world of IT. I remember fondly the year 1993 when Serge invited me to join the team. Nearly 25 years later, the Group has strengthened its
position even further, now ranking among the top in the industry. We can be proud of our success. We owe it not only to those who have placed their trust in us—our clients, employees, shareholders and partners—but also to our founder, an exceptional creator and industry champion, the likes of whom are hard to find. What fascinated me most about Serge was his interest in the little things as much as the bigger picture. He could enter into the most precise details, and the next moment define key elements of the company’s overall strategy at lightning speed, rightly anticipating industry trends before they fully emerged. He hated sticking to what was comfortable, and his entire journey, like the Group’s, was the result of striking a subtle balance between being bold and rational. Being bold leads us to take risks and rationality focuses our hunger for adventures. Serge was not afraid to continually reinvent the Group he had built. His demanding vision, obsession for results, and passion for people never ceased to amaze me. But more importantly, he fought tooth and nail for the values that made him who he was. These were profoundly human values that
speak to all of us, represent the bedrock of Capgemini’s culture. After 50 years, Capgemini has become a truly global and multicultural group, steadfast to the ethical framework that guides our operations and fiercely attached to our independence: global because we are firmly anchored in both our European birthplace, as well as the United States—and more recently India and Brazil—and multicultural because we embody the principles of diversity. There is no dominent culture, but an extraordinary coming together that transcends cultural boundaries. Now it is up to us, to write the next chapter in this incredible story. We will continue to live up to our clients’ high expectations by overcoming the exciting tech feats of tomorrow. We will ensure that digital technology and the cloud, like AI and automation, are understood to be tools that empower us rather than replace us. To that end, Capgemini must continue to transform, innovate and take risks with that same desire and determination shown by those who have made the Group what it is today. Happy Birthday Capgemini!
Capgemini MoveFifty – Move for a Cause As Capgemini turns half a century this year, the group has decided to celebrate 50 years of movement by unleashing a global challenge for a cause.

Bosques del Quetzal is a small town in Guatemala with one of the poorest adult literacy rates and lowest education investment among the Latin American countries. The 2014 floods in the neighborhood of Ciudad Quetzal completely destroyed a local school impacting the lives of 250 children under the age of 12. Around 480 volunteers from Capgemini Guatemala pledged to contribute their time and a percentage of their monthly salary (which was matched by Capgemini Guatemala) to rebuild
the school from scratch. They built four classrooms, restrooms, a perimeter wall, and provided furniture. In 2016, two other projects were included, and these efforts have now positively impacted the live of over 332 children.
