Dixons CIO leaves after outsource negotiations collapse

Dixons’ IT director has left the company after it dropped plans to outsource its IT department to Logica CMG.

Chief information officer Iain Andrew left Dixons last Monday at the same time as staff were told that Dixons and the outsourcer had failed to reach an agreement.

“We can confirm that we have ceased negotiations with Logica CMG regarding the potential outsourcing of our internally facing IS support function. We have been unable to agree terms,” said Dixons.

The 210 employees who were to be transferred to Logica CMG will continue to be employed by Dixons. A 90-day consultation process with the staff has also been cancelled.

Although some staff would have been transferred to Bangalore in India, the majority would have worked for Logica CMG in the UK. Logica CMG declined to comment on the breakdown of the deal.
