The other company focused on business process services with $7 billion in 2015 revenue will adopt the name Conduent once the split concludes by the end of 2016.

Jacobson started his career at Xerox as president of the firm’s global graphic communications operations.

He was appointed chief operating officer of Xerox’s technology business in 2014.
