“In DXC, I see the makings of a true global leader in IT services,” Read said. “I’m looking forward to working closely with our president and CEO, Mike Salvino, and the other board members as DXC continues its transformation journey and reaches its full potential, becoming a preferred destination for customers and talent alike.”
