Unisys Corp. announced that John Kritzmacher has been elected to the board of directors.
“John’s career as a global business leader has equipped him to provide Unisys with valuable insights on our strategic imperatives and how to achieve them,” said Unisys Chair and CEO Peter Altabef. “We are excited to welcome John to the Unisys board of directors and to leverage his expertise as we continue to work toward our financial and operational goals.”
Kritzmacher served most recently as executive vice president and chief financial officer of global research and education leader John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Before joining John Wiley & Sons, Kritzmacher was senior vice president of business operations and organizational planning at WebMD Health Corp. He served as executive vice president and CFO of Global Crossing Limited.
He also held a number of roles of increasing responsibility at Alcatel-Lucent and its predecessor companies, Lucent Technologies Inc., AT&T and Bell Laboratories, culminating in serving as CFO at Lucent and as chief operating officer of the Services Business Group at Alcatel-Lucent.
“I look forward to sharing my perspectives, particularly on the financial and operational aspects of doing business globally, as more than half of Unisys revenues come from non-U.S. operations,” Kritzmacher said. “I am also excited to join the Unisys board of directors to help tell the new Unisys story following the recent launch of its new brand identity.”
