CSC Appoints James Taylor Vice President and Global Segment Leader Within Technology and Consumer Group
News Release -- September 13, 2010
Position Will Lead Travel and Transportation Segment
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept.13 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) has named James Taylor vice president and global segment lead responsible for developing business within the Travel and Transportation industries. Taylor will report to Mary Jo Morris, president of CSC’s Technology and Consumer Group, and will be charged with leveraging CSC’s strengths in consulting, systems design and integration, managed hosting and outsourcing, while driving CSC’s portfolio of industry solutions.
“I am pleased to announce Jim’s appointment to segment leader for CSC’s Travel and Transportation practice. His contributions to our group have helped to define the strategic direction of this new segment,” said Morris. “Jim’s industry experience in Transportation and Logistics, coupled with his entrepreneurial approach, ability to develop key strategic relationships and quickly execute a go-to-market strategy, will help foster innovation, leverage CSC’s world-class delivery excellence and drive business results for our clients.”
“There is tremendous opportunity in the Transportation industry, and I’m thrilled to take on the challenge of growing CSC’s presence in this rapidly evolving market,” said Taylor. “The rail industry is implementing infrastructure modernization programs and streamlining fare collection systems to make them more passenger-friendly. Airlines, ocean carriers and freight haulers are looking for transformational solutions to lower operating costs and enhance the customer experience. These factors are driving a new wave of outsourcing spending from companies that have historically been reluctant to do so, and CSC’s portfolio of IP and innovative solutions are well suited to support these initiatives.”
Taylor joined CSC in 2002, and has more than 25 years in Global Services including IT, Transport/Logistics and Telecom. He has held executive positions in global sales, sales management, channel development/management, strategy, corporate development and alliances. Taylor has also led nine separate start-ups; eight within large enterprises and one for a private equity firm.
Taylor holds a BS in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has completed Leadership and Executive Education programs at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business; Insead University in Fontainbleu, France; and Cornell University’s e-Cornell Program.
