The Blue Bell-based Unisys Corporation has announced that Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Janet Haugen will retire on Nov. 1, 2016, after 20 years of service with the company, including the last 16 years as CFO.
Unisys also announced that it has named Inder M. Singh, who currently serves the company as Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, to succeed Haugen as SVP and CFO.
Haugen and Singh will work closely to ensure a seamless transition.
A magna-cum-laude graduate of Rutgers University, Haugen first joined Unisys in 1996 from Ernst & Young, where she was a partner with client responsibilities, including large, multinational technology and services companies.
“We thank Janet for her many years of service to Unisys,” said Peter Altabef, president and CEO of Unisys. “Her extensive knowledge of our company, her industry knowledge, and her financial acumen have been helpful time and time again.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my two decades with Unisys, as the company has migrated from a predominantly hardware-centric company to one focused on services, software, and solutions,” said Haugen.
Singh joined Unisys from SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc., where he served as a Managing Director, providing equity research and investment advice across the technology, media, and telecommunications sectors.
Previously, he served as a senior vice president for finance and strategy for Comcast Cable, and has held senior corporate finance leadership positions at Cisco Systems, AT&T, and Prudential Financial.
Singh holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, and an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
“Inder brings a strong finance and strategy background to our CFO role from his senior executive finance experience with both Fortune 50 companies and Wall Street, including leading finance organizations on the corporate side and framing investment strategies for institutional investors on the analyst side,” said Altabef.
“Unisys is well-positioned with a broad roster of clients across multiple industries, and a strong portfolio of solutions that come with highly differentiated security offerings,” said Singh. “As a finance team, we will ensure a sharp focus on executing to a financial strategy that best serves our clients, associates, and investors.”
