iXL Enterprises named several new additions to its executive team as the battered Web consultancy continues to actively pursue and attract talent. Atlanta-based iXL said Jay Norman, a former partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers, will lead its financial services consulting practice. Sanjay Apte is also joining iXL as its senior information technology and engineering executive. Prior to iXL, Apte worked at Financial Fusion where he was vice president of professional services.
iXL also appointed Patrick Carter to lead its CRM (customer relationship management) practice. CRM software helps companies manage such things as their customer requests and marketing activities. Most recently, Carter was president of Targetbase Interactive and had also been a manager at Ernst & Young. iXL recently appointed former PwC partner Christopher Formant as its new president and CEO. Formant, who led PwC's global banking consulting practice, took over the spot that was held by iXL founder Bert Ellis.
