Atos Origin, the international IT services company, announced the appointment of two new Vice Presidents to lead the health and government sales teams in the UK. Steve Wells joins from BT to lead healthand Chris Bingham joins from Capgemini to lead government.

“We warmly welcome Steve and Chris to Atos Origin,” commented Joe Edwards, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing in the UK. “The depth of experience that they both bring will further strengthen our health and government teams and build on current successes. They will work closely with all parts of our company to drive the Atos Origin business forward, building on existing government and health relationships and leveraging our leading IT role in the London 2012 and Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Steve Wells, Vice President of Health at Atos Origin in the UK, said: “I am delighted to be joining Atos Origin. Its unique position in the market place and the end-to-end services it provides to the health sector (from consulting through to delivery) makes this a particularly exciting opportunity for me. I’m looking forward to leading the team as it builds the business across the occupational health sphere and drives sales with local NHS organisations.”

Chris Bingham, Vice President of Government at Atos Origin in the UK, said: “My move to Atos Origin provides an excellent opportunity to join a company that is extremely well established in the public sector and that plays a leading role in helping the sector meet and exceed its challenging Operational Efficiency Programme agenda. In particular, I will be focusing on its unique Hi-Tech Transactional Services business, which will help us to drive new value into government departments and local authorities looking to deliver savings and improve services to citizens.”

Steve Wells joined Atos Origin at the start of March 2010 to lead the health sales team. Steve has extensive experience in both the health and IT marketplaces, with much of his early career focused on diagnostic imaging, life support and orthopaedics. He worked for 13 years at Hewlett Packard in a variety of senior sales and sales management roles. He spent time in the healthcare division before being promoted to lead the UK support services business. For the last six years, Steve was General Manager at BT, running the health business for the first three years and headed up the US global partner business in California.

Chris Bingham also joined Atos Origin at the start of March to lead the government sales team. Chris has had considerable sales and sales management success in both the private and public sectors. He spent the early part of his career at Hewlett-Packard in the defence and manufacturing sectors. In 2000, he took up a role in Capgemini’s telecom and media sector where he ran the Vodafone account in Northern Europe before taking up a number of prominent roles in the government team. During the last five years, he has led significant engagements in local government and justice and home affairs, and most recently, has played an influential role in Capgemini's global public security team.
