Fernandez Brings Extensive Technology Industry Experience and Deep Understanding of DXC’s Operations

ASHBURN, Va.: DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), a leading Fortune 500 global technology services company, today announced that the Company's Board of Directors unanimously appointed Raul Fernandez as its President and Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Fernandez, who was appointed Interim President and CEO in December 2023, has served as CEO of several successful companies prior to this role, and as a member of DXC’s Board of Directors since 2020.

“After a thoughtful evaluation of Fernandez’s leadership and operational expertise, as well as his deep knowledge of DXC from his time on the Board of Directors and as Interim CEO, the Board determined that he is the right leader to advance DXC’s strategic plan and position the company for long-term growth,” said David Herzog, Chairman of the Board. “Since Raul assumed the Interim role in December, the Board has seen firsthand his ability to build upon DXC’s successes, including with our trusted client relationships, while driving improved performance to best serve our customers, team members and investors over the long-term. The Board has full confidence in Raul’s ability to strengthen DXC’s position within the industry, support our transition from stability to profitable growth and drive value for our shareholders.”

“I am thrilled to be leading DXC as President and CEO,” said Fernandez. “I have long been impressed by the mission-critical and digital solutions that we provide to our clients and the talented team of 131,000 DXC colleagues working to serve clients around the world. During my time on the Board and as Interim CEO, I have gained a deeper understanding of DXC’s operations and identified opportunities to enhance our geographic go-to-market execution, further strengthen our financial performance and create an environment to grow and develop talent. I am incredibly excited to continue working with our global DXC team and the Board to execute upon our existing growth strategy as we deliver value for our shareholders and clients.”

As a result of today’s announcement, the Board will suspend its previously announced CEO search process. DXC has also issued its third quarter of fiscal 2024 results and will discuss its financial results during its conference call and webcast at 5:00 p.m. EST.
