More new appointments at Logica

Logica has appointed Portugal Telecom's head of international operations, João P. A. Baptista, as Chief Executive, International, the RoW bit of Logica's business outside of the UK, France, NL and Nordics representing c16% of Logica’s revenues.

This is Logica's third senior management appointment from the telco sector, after CEO Andy Green (BT) and COO Craig Boundy (C&W). I also understand that Gary Bullard, ex of BT, is to "coach" (retrain) the top account managers at Logica.

My ‘problem’ with this is something I have commented upon many times before. The ‘IT services’ undertaken by a company like Logica is often quite different from what masquerades as IT Services in a telco. Personally I’d have been happier if Green had recruited some really experienced managers from the top global IT services players like EDS, CSC, Accenture, Capgemini etc.
