CSC managing director and vice president for Australia and New Zealand, Seelan Nayagam, will lead the company’s operations in the local market following the completion of its multibillion-dollar merger with the Enterprise Services division of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

Following the landmark merger, which is expected to close by the end of March, Nayagam will serve as the new company’s vice president (VP) and general manager for the A/NZ region, according to documents filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

In the new role, Nayagam will report directly to current HP Enterprise Services executive vice president and general manager, Mike Nefkens, who will, in turn, step into the role of executive vice president and general manager, regions and industries, for the post-merger entity.

Nayagam has served as CSC’s local lead since 2014, after spending the better part of the previous six years with IBM in a variety of roles, including VP of application management services, Asia Pacific, VP and partner, global business services, IBM Growth Markets, and VP for IBM Global Process Services.

The appointments follow a comprehensive organisation design and selection process carried out by CSC and HPE Enterprise Services to select the leadership team for the new company.

In preparation for the completion of the merger, the companies have developed a new operating model built around three primary “motions” – build, sell, and deliver.

“We will build solutions with our partners that answer key market needs and lead digital transformations,” the companies said in the SEC filing.

“We will sell these solutions to customer and prospects - often with our partners - by anticipating and responding to their changing demands. And we will deliver these solutions in an exceptional way, on-time and on-budget.”

The new leadership structure has been set up to support the “build-sell-deliver” operating model.

“It also reflects the requirements of our go-forward global footprint, industry expertise, and corporate services structure,” the filing stated.

Under the new arrangement, the build segment will consist of nine global offerings, including industry solutions.

The sell segment will be led by Nefkens, in his capacity as EVP and GM, regions and industries. This segment will be organised into six regions and three vertically integrated global industries.

The third segment, deliver, will be led by CSC’s current executive vice president and general manager, Steve Hilton, who will step into the combines entity’s executive vice president.

This segment will be organised into six regional account-specific delivery teams, a network of eight delivery and transformation teams, and commercial and restricted delivery centers.

Nayagam’s new appointment, along with those of Nefkens and Hilton are just three of more than 30 new leadership roles set to come into play once the merger is completed.

At the top of the heap is CSC’s current chairman, president, and CEO, Mike Lawrie, who will retain his roles as chairman, president, and CEO for the combined entity once the merger is done.
