IT services provider DXC Technology has appointed former GE chief information officer Chris Drumgoole as executive vice president and chief information officer.

Drumgoole has more than 20 years of experience in the digital and information technology industry, including significant technology work with the US government - and as CIO at GE, he led the company’s global technology operations, including applications, infrastructure and related shared services. Prior to CIO he served as chief technology officer.

Drumgoole joined GE from Verizon, where he served as chief operating officer of Verizon’s Terremark subsidiary, a cloud, hosting, and data centre provider - joining Verizon through its acquisition of Terremark, where he served as a member of the executive leadership team.

Drumgoole’s appointment represents the seventh addition to DXC’s president and chief executive office Mike Salvino’s senior leadership team since he became CEO in September of last year.

Drumgoole, who will report to Salvino, will lead DXC’s global IT strategy and operations, helping the company “meet and exceed” the technology needs of its customers.

Drumgoole will head a team responsible for running DXC’s technology operations, integrating and streamlining systems and implementing new digital capabilities to improve performance and efficiency - and ensure the security and stability of DXC’s global IT infrastructure.

“We’re pleased to add someone with the experience and capabilities Chris brings,” Salvino said.

“In his role as CIO, Chris will deploy the same core capabilities that DXC delivers for its clients. In doing this, he will showcase the advantages of a focused strategy based on DXC’s enterprise technology stack – and the impact it can have on customers, people and operational execution.”

“I’m excited to join a team that’s committed to digital technologies that can bring performance, efficiency and security to DXC and its customers,” Drumgoole said.

“I look forward to making our IT operation a case study for what can be accomplished through strategic insight and innovation across the technology stack.”

Drumgoole serves on the board of directors of PetSmart, where he is a member of the audit committee, on the advisory board of Florida International University’s College of Engineering & Computing, and as a member of the board of directors of ONUG, a forum for IT business leaders interested in exchanging ideas and best practices for open technologies.

Drumgoole studied management information systems (MIS) at Pace University in New York.
