BT Global Services Names CIO

BT Global Services announced the appointment of JP Rangaswami as chief information officer (CIO). Mr Rangaswami will report to Andy Green, CEO, BT Global Services, and to Al-Noor Ramji, CEO of BT Exact, BT's technology organization.

JP Rangaswami recently served at the investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, where he headed the Alternative Market Models after serving five years as the global CIO. He led the bank's transition to the EUR and managed Y2K and Minimum Requirements programmes. Originally an economist and financial journalist, Rangaswami also held a number of senior positions in multinational companies before joining Dresdner, including Burroughs Corporation, Data General, and Cap Gemini.

"As telephony became software, telcos the world over had to respond to the challenge, reinventing themselves as true global ICT providers," said JP Rangaswami. "I believe that BT has positioned itself uniquely in this respect, and I look forward to working in Global Services, helping build the business through pragmatic innovation and flawless execution."
