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.

“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.”
