Vishal Gupta

Vishal Gupta, senior vice president for engineering at Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC), will serve as chief technology officer and SVP for technology at Unisys (NYSE: UIS) starting Aug. 31.

He will directly report to Unisys CEO Peter Altabef and succeed Tarek El-Sadany, who will leave by the end of August to assume a CEO role in the technology sector, the company said Tuesday.

He held senior leadership roles at Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), Nortel Networks, MetaSolv Software and Mercer Management Consulting.
