Capco Appoints Dee McDougal as US Head of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

NEW YORK & CHARLOTTE, JANUARY 12, 2021 – Capco, the global management and technology consultancy, has appointed Dee McDougal as its new US Head of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I).

Dee’s appointment follows Capco’s public commitment to effect a tangible step-change around diversity, equity and inclusion to accelerate its Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) agenda and ensure a zero-tolerance attitude toward discriminatory behavior.

Michael Pugliese, Managing Partner of Capco’s U.S. business, said: “Dee is a corporate changemaker and community champion. As a D&I executive, non-profit board member, speaker, and consultant on inclusion, she is passionate about creating workplaces where everyone can be the best version of themselves. She will partner with our HR team, as well as leaders from our business and our affinity groups, to drive an integrated DE&I agenda and help us move the needle on awareness, education, diversity recruitment, mentoring, career progression, and best practices across the U.S.”

Dee will be based out of Capco’s office in Charlotte, NC, reporting to Mary Keller, US Head of Human Resources. She joins Capco from Pacific Western Bank (PWB), where she served as Senior Vice President of D&I. In that role she led PWB’s corporate diversity and inclusion strategy, and developed education and engagement programs for internal and external stakeholders.

Dee serves on various external professional committees and advisory groups, including the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Group and Professional Development Council of the American Bankers Association, the Executive Committee for the North Carolina Black Entrepreneurship Council. She is also a member of the N.C. Rural Center Small Business Policy Task Force.

She also serves on the board of directors for Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties and Empower Dance Foundation.
