Hewlett-Packard may have found a successor to Stephen Gill, UK and Ireland managing director, with former CSC European president Nick Wilson tipped for the role.
As revealed last month, Gill was due to leave the post at the start of July to become the head up the vendor's business in Korea but has remained with in the UK until his replacement joins the firm.
Unsurprisingly an HP spokeswoman refused to comment on the potential candidate. "The decision regarding Steve Gill's replacement has not yet been confirmed," she told MicroScope.
"As part of his commitment to the UK and Ireland, he will be working with the management to ensure that his replacement is the right person to lead the business, address the challenges and capture the opportunities that lie ahead."
A spokeswoman at CSC confirmed Wilson - who previously worked at Unisys and IBM Global Services- has resigned from his post at CSC.
Sources close to HP have questioned why the vendor has decided to recruit a country level director with a background in services from outside of the business when it has a number of senior staff at EDS that could fill the role.
