Has another CSC top executive disappeared? And is it because of CSC’s Q4 FY13 sales performance?
Just a month ago, Peter Allen, Executive Vice President for Global Sales & Marketing was hosting CSC’s Global Sales Conference (GSC) in Dallas, Texas. Summaries of the conference are publicly available on:
But curiously, Peter Allen seems to have disappeared in the past 30 days. The CSC website showsthat the current EVP for Global Sales and Marketing and for Regional Operations is a certain John P Maguire.
So what has happened to Peter Allen? It is hard to know, as there has been no announcement of his leaving. And who is John P Maguire? Hard to know, as there does not seem to be any public announcement of his arrival.
Peter Allen has been leading CSC’s efforts to re-focus its sales force over the past 12 months. It seems unusual to change leaders at this crucial stage in the company’s change program. It is also almost embarrassing to put up on YouTube several videos of the GSC led by an executive who left the company within 30 days.
Maybe Peter Allen resigned of his own volition. Maybe.
Alternately, was CSC’s Q4 FY13 revenue shortfall a much bigger shock and disappointment within CSC than Mike Lawrie intimated during the May 15 Analyst Conference? And has Peter Allen disappeared because of that?
