“Capgemini History

It’s 1967 in Grenoble, France: television broadcasts are in color for the first time in France. The city is buzzing about the upcoming 1968 Winter Olympic Games. Inspired by these exciting technological and cultural changes, entrepreneur Serge Kampf decides the time is ripe to launch an IT company, Sogeti. And so the Capgemini story begins.
During my 45 years at the head of the Group, there are many decisions that I regret, and some are really proud! In the coming years, I want the Group remains firmly in their values ​​and continue to strive to be the best.
