Michael W. Laphen, the president and CEO of information technology contractor CSC, plans to retire by Oct. 31, 2012.
Laphen has agreed to stay on until a new exectuive has been hired and the transition finished.
The Falls Church-based company’s board of directors has formed a search committee for his replacement. Laphen has been with CSC since 1977. He became president and chief operating officer in 2003 and chairman and CEO in 2007.
