PLANO, TX – March 15, 2019 – NTT DATA Services, a recognized leader in global technology services, is proud to announce that the company’s Chief Information Officer, Barry Shurkey, continues to receive accolades for his progressive integration of the former Dell Services. In the past 6 months, Shurkey was named the 2018 Tech Titan, the 2019 D CEO CIO of the Year Award and most recently the 2019 Global CIO of the year by the Dallas CIO Leadership Association.

Shurkey led IT integration efforts in NTT DATA’s $3 billion acquisition of the former Dell Services that began in November 2016. Through his meticulous and proactive approach, the integration allowed NTT DATA to improve its global reach, offer new cost-effective solutions, expand its portfolio of services and increase its range of capabilities.

As the company integrated 30,000 employees in just 18 months, Shurkey led his team to migrate more than 1,000 applications, 200 IT projects, nine data centers, 54 facilities and 1,600 data circuits.

“It has been a great privilege leading a powerful team and mentoring some of the brightest minds I have ever met,” Shurkey said. “Providing a team with a purpose and a mission – allowing the technologists to do their job and then being continuously supportive of them is how I lead from my heart.”

“Barry accepted a massive and complex challenge with this merger integration, and he demonstrated great flexibility, innovation and creativity in leading his team to complete every milestone on budget and ahead of schedule,” said Bob Pryor, CEO, NTT DATA Services. “His leadership and technology expertise set the foundation for a unified corporate culture that now spans 44 countries for NTT DATA Services. We are fortunate to have him as part of this team and are proud of all his accomplishments and recognitions.”
