Bob Pryor, chief operating officer at NTT Data’s services division, has been promoted to CEO in a move that will take effect on July 1.

Pryor, who has served as COO since April 2017, joined NTT Data Services in 2016 after serving as CEO of Fujitsu Americas.

“As COO, Bob played an essential role in setting this strong foundation, including the successful integration of the former Dell Services, and he will do a great job as CEO leading this company and our clients into the future,” said McCain, who is also a member of the parent company’s board.

NTT Data closed in November 2016 its $3.05 billion purchase of Dell’s services business, which now operates as NTT Data Services.

NTT Data Services delivers information technology support to public sector, financial services, manufacturing, commercial, life sciences and health care segments.
