Compaq today unveiled plans to promote its UK MD Joe McNally to chairman for the region. But his replacement won't report to him.

McNally founded the vendor's UK and Ireland operation 16 years ago.

His replacement is Rene Schuster - currently CEO of consumer industrial markets and a senior partner at KPMG Management Consulting EMEA. Schuster will join Compaq on July 17, and will report to Werner Koepf, Compaq EMEA vice president and general manager.

Schuster has previously worked at IBM, as well as at General Electric.

McNally, who was big in meat distribution and a dustman in Gateshead in previous careers [Dell kindly rang up Vulture Central to point the last point out], will act as a "visionary" for Compaq, one representative of the US-based giant said today.

Schuster will be responsible for 5000 staff in Compaq's biggest subsidiary outside the US at KPMG he had 2500 people under him. Compaq UK and Ireland has annual sales of more than $3 billion, almost three times that of Schuster's area at KPMG. ®
