Unisys is combining its vertical financial services, commercial and public sector businesses into one global industries group under the leadership of Brian Maloney, former chief operating officer of Perot Systems.
Commenting on the restructuring, Joe McGrath, Unisys CEO, says: "Combining three of our businesses into one global industries organisation will simplify our organization and bring it greater focus."
In his new role, Maloney will report directly to McGrath.
Maloney is former COO of Texas-based IT services firm Perot Systems. Unisys says at Perot Systems Maloney "led the company to nearly 100% growth within three years and implemented a more cost-effective service delivery model by driving an offshore strategy". He also rebuilt the firm's sales organisation.
Prior to Perot, Maloney was president and CEO at AT&T Solutions. As a member of the group's original start-up team he had a hand in every element of the business. He also served as lead negotiator for AT&T's $5 billion purchase of the IBM Global Network.
