IT services company FTS Group has hired former DXC Technology vice president Stephen Kowal as its new CEO.
He replaces Stephen Keys, who has since moved as the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa president of software vendor IFS.
Kowal will be based in Sydney and retains more than 30 years of experience within the IT and commercial business sector. Most recently he was the vice president of DXC Technology, taking charge of business development across A/NZ.
He came into the role following the acquisition of CSC, where he spent more than 10 years as the CIO and general manager.
During his time at CSC, Kowal was responsible for leading key client engagements and expanding the business into the financial services sector as well as growing its portfolio in Asia, Japan, the US and the UK.
His experience also features CIO roles with BHP Billiton Base Metals in South America and WMC Resources, as well as working at Cable and Wireless, Boral and the Department of Defence.
“Through our combined skills and experience, FTS Group has a great opportunity to successfully partner and work collaboratively with both Australian private and public sector organisations on the delivery of their ongoing digital transformation journeys,” Kowal said.
“I’m very much looking forward to strengthening our customer engagements and leading FTS Group through its next exciting phase of growth and development.”
FTS is made up of a group of services businesses including Anatas, Cubic Consulting, FTS Data & AI, FTS Resourcing, Kobold, SME Gateway and Veritec.
