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.”

HD-PLC Innovates IoT World21.1.2020 01:00:00 CET | Press release
In Japan, the High-definition Power Line Communication (HD-PLC) technology has been mostly used in PLC adapters and communication equipment so far. One major reason was the interpretation of the “Ministerial Order to Provide Technical Standards for Electrical Appliances and Materials” which applied to the integration of HD-PLC into home electric appliances and housing equipment. Recently, the efforts of the involved parties have been rewarded by the Notice issued on December 25, 2019 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) that partially revised the interpretation of the Ministerial Order. HD-PLC can now be integrated in home appliances and housing equipment. The main advantages of HD-PLC over wireless technologies include an easy setup of communication networks, a high level of security, and low power consumption. Additionally, HD-PLC can be used on power lines, coaxial cables, telephone lines, and other existing lines which not only enables the deployment of networks in
