PRESS RELEASE

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CompuCom Systems, Inc. (“CompuCom”), the leading IT outsourcing specialist, today announced the promotion of Anthony (Tony) Doye (“age: 56”) to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Doye joined CompuCom as Divisional CEO in November, responsible for the executive leadership of all sales and support functions including Services, Hardware and Software. The Company previously announced he would succeed Jim Dixon, who will transition to his role as Executive Chairman of CompuCom after more than 20 years of dedicated service to CompuCom, its clients and associates.

Dixon led the transformation of the company from a national reseller of hardware to an IT services leader. Doye will continue to solidify CompuCom as the leading provider of IT outsourcing services and products to North American enterprise organizations, while driving the Company’s expansion into emerging areas which require platform expertise and management, including mobile device management and cloud services.
“I am delighted to announce Tony’s promotion to CEO,” said Jim Dixon. “This is the culmination of the succession plan we laid out in January. Tony’s drive and track record of success are vital to CompuCom’s continued growth. Since joining CompuCom, he has shown a commitment to creating value for our clients and helped to reshape the strategic direction of the company.”
Prior to joining CompuCom, Doye served as President and CEO at Fujitsu North America where he was responsible for the North American Outsourcing portfolio generating well over a billion dollars in revenue that spanned all Fujitsu International Business activities in the United States, Canada and Caribbean regions. Doye also successfully integrated diverse business units and led the launch of a full range of cloud solutions and outsourcing services growth programs.
“Jim has done a phenomenal job in growing the CompuCom business as CEO,” said Doye. “I am honored to have been given this opportunity and I’m excited to lead the organization into its next chapter of growth, as we work closely with our clients to develop and roll out the technology-enabled solutions that will truly enhance their businesses.”
Doye has extensive experience in creating and delivering solutions that improve client service levels and nurture innovation. His professional background includes more than 30 years of IT industry experience in positions of increasing responsibility with companies including Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), Unisys and IBM.
