EDS chief flies into the arms of Computacenter

UK's top dealership gets a good servicing

Computacenter has nabbed the UK MD of services giant EDS.

David Courtley started as services director at the UK reseller giant today.

The 43-year-old was reluctant to give more details on what his role at Computacenter would involve, saying he would rather wait until the reseller's PR machine spins into action later this week.

But why bother when we can do a much better job?
This is a real coup for Computacenter, which has been pushing to get into the high margin services business and shrug off its box-shifter image for ages. It is still seen in many circles as the UK's biggest PC dealer.

Presumably, it will be Courtley's job to steer the company further in this direction.

EDS last week signed deals worth a total of £1.85 billion with Rolls Royce and merged Australian banks - Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Colonial. ®
