He currently serves as a senior adviser with private equity fund Bridge Growth Partners LLC and is a member of the board of directors for Hertz, Solace Corp. and BackOffice Associates. He will also be a part of DXC’s audit and risk committees.
Fernandez is vice chairman and owner of Monumental Sports & Entertainment, a private partnership that owns the Women’s National Basketball Association’s Washington Mystics, as well as the Washington Capitals, the Washington Wizards (for which he serves on the NBA Board of Governors), the Wizards District Gaming NBA 2K team and the Capital One Arena. He was also founder, CEO and chairman of Proxicom Inc. and chairman and CEO of ObjectVideo.

“With vast experience in the IT industry and proven leadership abilities, Dave and Raul bring important perspective and insight to our board,” DXC Chairman of the Board Ian C. Read said in a statement. “These additions complement the work that [DXC CEO] Mike Salvino and his leadership team are doing to launch the ‘new DXC’.”
DXC Technology was formed in April 2017 as a result of the merger of Computer Science Corp. and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The company has 138,000 employees worldwide and last year had revenues of more than $21 billion.
