Jonathan Lewis was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Capita in December 2017. He has a strong track record of guiding large, multinational organisations through periods of significant change.
Jon is overseeing the transformation of Capita from traditional outsourcer to world-class consulting, digital services and software business.
Capita employs more than 63,000 people and every day provides services on behalf of both private and public sector clients that touch the lives of millions of people.
Jon’s philosophy for leadership is underpinned by a strong sense that businesses should act responsibly in terms of ensuring their impact upon all stakeholders – colleagues, customers, suppliers, investors and society – is positive.
Before joining Capita, Jon was CEO of Amec Foster Wheeler, where the transformation he oversaw culminated in a £2.2 billion acquisition of the business by John Wood Group.
Previously, he worked for more than two decades at Halliburton, holding a number of senior management positions.
Jon sits on the board of directors for Norwegian oil and gas business Equinor.
Over a 30-year career, Jon has worked in Europe, North America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. He has expertise in strategy formulation, innovation through technology and the development of human capital.
He holds a PhD from the University of Reading and is a graduate of the Stanford University Executive Program.
Jon is married and has two children. He is an avid supporter of the Welsh rugby team, haling from a small mining town in South Wales to which he still returns every weekend.
