Global IT company CSC announced earlier this month some significant changes in senior management. Heading up those changes is the decision by Pres. and CEO Michael W. Laphen to retire in the near future. Laphen will continue in his current capacity until a new CEO is chosen and the transition has been successfully made. If all goes according to plans, that process will be complete by October 2012. Laphen’s announcement comes only months after John Green was named as CSC vice president of business services in the Netherlands, Nordics, and the UK.
“I began my professional career with CSC in 1977, and I am proud to have been a part of the company’s growth and evolution into a premier, global IT services company,” said Laphen. “CSC’s dedicated employees and management team have put CSC on a solid footing, and I am confident that the company is well positioned for its next phase of growth and development. I look forward to working with the board of directors and my successor to ensure a seamless transition.”
The other significant change revolves around CSC Canada which now has a new president in Peter Donnelly. Donnelly has been charged with leading the company’s Canadian operations with the goal of long-term growth and company focus. Prior to his promotion, Donnelly was the executive in charge of two of the company’s most successful accounts, Nortel and BHP Billiton. He has proven his viability as a senior manager by leading the Canadian division through successful billion-dollar deals.
