Computacenter has appointed Peter Ryan as its next non-executive chairman.
Ryan (pictured above) will start in the position on 16 May, taking over from incumbent Greg Lock, who is retiring after 11 years in the role.
Ryan was chosen through a selection process led by its special nomination committee and a search consultancy, with internal and external candidates both considered for the position.
Ryan joined Computacenter's board in February of last year as an independent non-executive director and continues to be independent on appointment to the chairmanship.
His career has spanned 37 years in the industry, including roles at HPE, Logica and IBM.
"Greg Lock has leed the company for the last 11 years, a period which has seen significant change and strong performance," stated Mike Norris, Computacenter CEO.
"I thank Greg personally and on behalf of the company for his enthusiasm, commitment and great leadership during his time as chairman.
"My fellow board members and I are confident that Peter's personal qualities and extensive, relevant, international sector experience will lead us through the challenges and opportunities ahead.
"Peter has already made a significant contribution to the work of the board as a non-executive director, with his excellent knowledge of the environment in which we operate, and I look forward to working with him more closely as we continue to develop and implement our strategy of enabling success".
Departing non-executive chairman Greg Lock said: "On a personal note I say goodbye, after 11 years as chairman - the best job I have ever had!
"It is time for me to hand over to Peter Ryan, who has been on our board for a year.
"I am confident in his personality, experience and expertise, and I look forward to watching how our investments deliver continuous improvements in results."
