Peter Altabef, president and CEO of Unisys (NYSE: UIS), has been named chairman of the Blue Bell, Pennsylvania-based information technology company’s board of directors in a move that takes effect April 26.
Altabef will succeed the retiring Paul Weaver, who has been board chairman since 2015, and will continue to serve in his current roles, Unisys said Tuesday.
Altabef moved to Unisys in 2015 after he previously held president and CEO roles at Micros Systems, which is now owned by Oracle (NYSE: ORCL).
He became president of Dell’s services business following the acquisition of Perot Systems, where he also served as president and CEO.
He serves on the boards of directors of NiSource, Petrus Trust and EastWest Institute as well as on the advisory board of Merit Energy.
Nathaniel Davis, a Unisys board member since 2011 and chair of the company’s nominating and corporate governance committee, will assume the role of independent lead director in April.
Davis serves as chairman of the board at online education firm K12 (NYSE: LRN).
He started his career at AT&T (NYSE: T) before he held senior leadership roles at XM Satellite Radio, XO Communications, Nextel Communications, MCI Communications and Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR).
