Report: Dell Services president could leave after sale completed

Once Dell Inc.'s $3 billion sale of its Dell Services IT division is completed,  Dell Services president Suresh Vaswani could be leaving the company, according to published reports.

The Economic Times, citing unnamed sources, reported that Vaswani is likely to leave Dell in December or early in 2017, after helping integrate the division into its new owner, Japan-based NTT Data.

NTT Data announced Monday that it is buying Dell Services for $3.1 billion.

Dell Services was formerly known as Perot Systems, a company founded by former U.S. presidential candidate Ross Perot. Dell bought it in 2009 for $3.9 billion at a time when it was working to expand beyond its core business of personal computers.

The sale would enable Round Rock-based Dell Inc., which is the largest private employer in Central Texas, to raise cash to help complete its planned $67 billion buyout of EMC Corp., analysts said.

Vaswani is former CEO of Wipro, an India-based IT consulting and system integration services corporation. He was hired by Dell Inc. in 2011.
