DXC Technology shifts CIO to COO
Chris Drumgoole was hired as CIO in March 2020
Tysons-based Fortune 500 IT company DXC Technology promoted Chris Drumgoole to executive vice president and chief operating officer, it announced Thursday, when Drumgoole assumed the role.
“Going forward as COO, my focus will be to further enhance the productivity of our workforce, simplify and streamline operations and processes, and ensure clarity and accountability while meeting our margin objectives,” Drumgoole said in a statement.
Drumgoole will report to Mike Salvino, DXC’s president and CEO, and will be responsible for the company’s business and administrative operations and oversight of its IT strategy, operations and infrastructure. Drumgoole joined DXC as its chief information officer in March 2020.
“In a short amount of time, Chris and his team have made a significant impact at DXC,” Salvino said in a statement, “from simplifying our IT infrastructure to enabling our global workforce to be fully operational and work virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Before joining DXC, he was chief information officer at General Electric Co., where he led its global technology operations. He previously had been the chief operating officer of Terremark Worldwide Inc., a Verizon Communications Inc. subsidiary.
He serves on the advisory boards of PetSmart Inc. and Florida International University’s College of Engineering & Computing, and is a member of the board of directors of ONUG, a forum for IT business leaders. He volunteers with Year Up, which works to address inequities in pathways to employment with tuition-free job trainings.
Drumgoole studied management information systems at Pace University in New York.
