Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has appointed Mike Lawrie president and CEO, effective no later than March 31, CSC announced Tuesday.

Lawrie, currently CEO of UK-based financial services software firm Misys, will also join CSC’s board of directors, effectively immediately.

Lawrie will succeed Michael Laphen, who announced his plan to retire from CSC in October.

CSC also appointed current board member Rodney Chase non-executive chairman of the board. That appointment will take effect when Lawrie assumes his non-board posts.

Lawrie has served as executive chairman of healthcare information technology firm Allscripts-Misys Healthcare Solutions, which was formed through a merger of Misys’ healthcare division with Allscripts.

Allscripts-Misys Healthcare Solutions later merged with healthcare IT firm Eclipsys.

Lawrie’s previous experience includes 27 years at IBM (NYSE: IBM), where he served as senior vice president and group executive with responsibility for worldwide sales and distribution.
