EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that former Dell and Bain executive Louise O’Brien has joined the company as Executive Vice President, Corporate Strategy and Development. O’Brien will report to Joe Tucci, EMC Chairman, President and CEO, and be responsible for overseeing EMC’s corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, Office of the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and New Ventures Group.
O’Brien, 47, joins EMC from her own consulting practice, which she established after spending more than seven years with Dell Inc., where she held several senior management positions including Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Development. She also served as Partner at Bain & Company, the global business consulting firm, and led the firm’s Customer Loyalty Practice. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.
In announcing the appointment, Tucci said, “EMC’s success in recent years has resulted from persistent, aggressive investment in a broad portfolio of internally developed and acquired assets, from which we have built the world’s most advanced set of information infrastructure solutions. Louise brings to EMC more than two decades worth of experience helping companies build these strategies, uncover acquisition targets, find new sources of profitable growth, and sharpen their competitive advantage. As a member of EMC’s executive management team, she will help propel EMC through our next phase of growth and advance our differentiated strategy through innovation across every aspect of the business.”
“EMC is one of the world’s most well-positioned and well-managed major IT companies with a bold and innovative history,” said O’Brien. “I am delighted to join a winning company with such a strong customer orientation and deep and talented management team. This is a particularly exciting point in EMC’s history given its unique position and opportunity to shape the future of information technology and deliver new levels of value to customers.”
In addition, to further strengthen its business unit approach to the IT marketplace, EMC promoted three of its senior executives to President. Mark Lewis, 45, has been named President of EMC’s Content Management and Archiving (CMA) business, after having served most recently as Chief Development Officer (CDO); David Donatelli, 42, has been named President, EMC Storage Division; and Howard Elias, 50, has been named President, EMC Global Services.
