By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu has appointed Duncan Tait, previously managing director of the company’s private sector business, as the new CEO for UK & Ireland.

Tait succeeds Roger Gilbert, who has held the post of CEO since 2009 and will be taking up the role of executive chairman of the UK and Ireland region.

Tait is credited with growing the company’s revenue contribution from the private sector significantly, including tier 1 customer wins and contract extensions including Whitbread, Shell and Stagecoach.

Tait was appointed to the role of managing director of the private sector business in October 2009.

Prior to joining Fujitsu, Tait was managing director of Unisys UK, Middle East and Africa business and before that a ten-year career at HP culminated in a role as UK & Ireland outsourcing director.

Fujitsu UK and Ireland executive chairman Roger Gilbert said anyone who knows Duncan will know that his drive and enthusiasm for this sector is second to none.

"Since joining Fujitsu he has led the charge to grow our business outside of the public sector and as a result has made a significant contribution to our revenues," Gilbert said.
