London-based boutique management consultancy Plenitude Consulting is looking to bolster its capacity to navigate the increasing levels of financial crime across the UK, to which end it has appointed a former Accenture executive and the former CEO of Capco South Africa Steve Vinnicombe as a Non-Executive Director.

Having obtained a degree in Economic and Social History from the Unversity of Bristol, Vinnicombe immediately entered the world of consulting. He began his professional career at global management consultancy Accenture, where he spent over a decade in the firm’s Capital Markets division.

Over the course of his time at Accenture, Vinnicombe held the positions of Senior Manager and eventually Senior Executive for Capital Markets. Following his long spell at Accenture Vinnicombe moved to global business and technology consultancy Capco, where he would spend the next six years.

During his time at Capco, Vinnicombe achieved tremendous success, having contributed significantly to the firm’s compound annual growth rate between 2010 and 2016, which stood at a staggering 25%. Towards the end of his spell at Capco, Vinnicombe had ascended to the position of CEO for both the UK and the South Africa markets.

Since 2016, he has been engaged with a variety of firms in an advisory capacity, including Heidrick & Struggles,, Delta Capita and Amalytics Software. Now, Vinnicombe will work as a Non-Executive Director at Plenitude, a specialised management consultancy operating in the domain of financial crime.

The firm was founded in 2012, and offers a range of services, including financial crime compliance, anti-bribery and corruption services, prevention of tax evasion and a number of others. Plenitude has recently come into a wave of business with a number of high profile clients, which is a major factor for bringing on board an experienced executive such as Vinnicombe.

Commenting on his appointment, Vinnicombe said, “Financial Crime Compliance is at the epicentre of the seismic changes that Financial Services is undergoing. There is a significant opportunity to address both the regulatory and social imperatives related to money laundering , terrorist financing, sanctions evasion, bribery and corruption, fraud and tax evasion."

He added, “Plenitude has developed a well-deserved reputation for serving its clients with first rate advice and committed execution in its work to date. I am looking forward to helping the firm through the next stage of its growth as it deepens its client relationships, invests in different IP-led products and sponsors the development of its high calibre consultants.
