Salvino succeeds Mike Lawrie, who has served as DXC’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer since the company’s formation in 2017. Lawrie has announced his retirement as President and CEO and will retire as DXC’s board chair on Dec. 31, 2019.
“Mike Salvino, who joined DXC’s board in May 2019, is a respected leader in the IT services industry with more than 30 years of experience and a strong track record of building profitable businesses that delivered value for clients and shareholders,” said Manoj P. Singh, Chair of the Board's Nominating Committee.
Lawrie and the DXC board began discussing succession and planned retirement about a year ago. With his support, the board began a process to identify and recruit his successor.
“We want to thank Mike Lawrie for guiding DXC through its successful integration and initial phase of transformation,” Singh said. “During his tenure, DXC became the world’s leading, independent end-to-end IT services company and built significant digital capabilities to help DXC execute its strategy. We look forward to his continued leadership during this important transition.”
Salvino most recently served as a managing director at Carrick Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on the technology sector, where he specialized in technology-enabled services, including BPO, security and machine learning.
Before joining Carrick, Salvino served for seven years as group chief executive of Accenture Operations, one of Accenture’s five businesses, and was a member of Accenture’s Global Management Committee. Salvino led Accenture’s 100,000-person global Operations business, growing the business 20 percent during his final year. Salvino left Accenture for Carrick in 2016 after spending more than 22 years at the company.
“Mike Salvino is the perfect choice to lead DXC into its next phase of growth,” Lawrie said. “He is a proven leader with a strong track record of successfully running businesses, forging trusted client relationships, and creating an environment to grow and develop talent.
“It’s been my privilege to serve as CEO as we repositioned DXC to focus on digital transformation and how we best serve clients,” Lawrie continued. “DXC is a world-class business, built by its extraordinary leaders and workforce. I’m proud of all that we accomplished.”
Mike Salvino said, “DXC has an enviable client portfolio, deep industry partnerships and a talented global team. I am looking forward to leveraging these strengths and my proven operational playbook to accelerate the execution of our growth strategy.”

With Putin’s Visit, UAE Takes Spotlight in the New World Order14.10.2019 08:21:00 CEST | Press release
Watermelon Communications -- Patrick Michael, a commentator on the Middle East, wrote: Energy, Strategy, and Security; these three parameters have defined and shaped Russia-Middle East relations in the post-Cold War era. At a microcosmic level, this also applies in the case of UAE-Russia ties. While energy creates interdependence and makes partnership the only viable option on the table, security and strategy continues to be an entangled web. As Putin embarks on another significant visit to the Gulf – essentially UAE and Saudi Arabia – it’s time to revisit the three parameters. A good starting point is the conversion of views and strategies on energy supplies. A broad agreement over the output cut is critical considering the pressure on oil prices in the wake of a slowing global economy. There’s nothing more fruitful for the industry and the economy than the big suppliers working in coordination and Russia “deeply values the significant contribution the UAE is making to the global oil

SHINE Creates Therapeutics Division, Will Attend 2019 European Association of Nuclear Medicine Conference12.10.2019 04:00:00 CEST | Press release
SHINE Medical Technologies, LLC today announced the creation of a new division of the company — SHINE Therapeutics. The establishment of the division enhances the company’s ability to focus on filling critical future needs in the rapidly growing therapeutic isotope market, while continuing to leverage its radioisotope production expertise. The company’s Therapeutics division will initially focus on the development and commercialization of lutetium‑177, or Lu‑177, a therapeutic isotope that is combined with a disease-specific targeting molecule to treat cancer. Targeting molecules deliver Lu‑177 atoms to cancer sites throughout the body, where they directly irradiate cancer cells. The first Lu‑177-based targeted radiotherapy (for neuroendocrine tumors) reached the market in 2018. Many high-potential targeted molecules for the treatment of a range of other cancers with Lu-177 are currently under investigation. SHINE is also evaluating additional medical isotopes with therapeutic properti
Smart Taxation – A Step Towards a Fair, Efficient and Growth-Friendly European Taxation Approach11.10.2019 22:01:00 CEST | Press release
In a rapidly changing global economy, smart taxation is essential to drive growth and economic prosperity. However, the European Union (EU) continues to fall behind as it persists with a one-size-fits all taxation system. This year’s GLOBSEC Tatra Summit hosts a Focus Group, bringing together international experts, looking to reshape and support a smarter European tax policy. Europe is at a crossroads in adapting its tax policy to the realities of today’s global economy. The EU plays a key role in overseeing national tax rules in some areas - particularly in relation to EU business and consumer policies. The institutional changeover marks a perfect opportunity for the Tatra Summit to place major topics on the radar of decision-makers and offer efficient recommendations. So now is the time to adapt the EU’s taxation model to be fit-for-purpose. With member states around the table, European fiscal authorities should design a model that does not have a disruptive impact on national needs
