Pettit joined DXC in June from Accenture where he spent 25 years, most recently as a senior managing director in Accenture’s Health and Public Services business. Turpie joined DXC in November 2019 and previously held senior roles in strategic sourcing and procurement at QBE Insurance Group Ltd. and Zurich Insurance Company.

“I am very pleased with the leadership team that we have been able to create to drive the ‘new DXC’,” Salvino said in a statement. “We have attracted some outstanding industry talent and combined with the existing leaders have created a leadership team that has a strong track record of delivering for customers and people. I am looking forward to personally working with this team to continue to execute on our transformation journey.”
