Mr Valdez replaces Stephen Savage, who has accepted a new position leading the companyâ€™s global government relations program as chief government relations officer. Both Mr Valdez and Mr Savage report to Phil Harrington, executive vice president, risk, and chief administrative officer.
Mr Valdez has held chief information officer positions at BMC Software and Veritas Software, where he led programs with the executive teams to improve operating margins, business processes, IT restructuring and investment, and product implementations.
Mr Valdez also has served as divisional information officer and chief technology officer at Associates First Capital Corporation. Earlier in his career, he spent time at US West and Arthur Andersen.
Most recently, Mr Valdez spent two years as the technology information officer for the Houston Independent School District, a school district in the US, where he was recruited through a Dell Foundation Grant to create and execute an IT transformation plan.
Prior to becoming CIO, he was responsible for the business planning cycle and the significant corporate transformation that redefined the companyâ€™s business processes. Mr Savage has also been responsible for corporate strategy and SOX compliance and has held international roles within CA Technologies, including running the Application Products Group in Europe as well as European professional services.
Before joining CA Technologies, he was responsible for international operations of a consulting services company that was purchased by CA Technologies in 1998.
Mr Harrington said: â€œWith more than 25 years of combined professional technology and business experience, Greg is ideally suited for the role of CIO. Greg will build on what we already have accomplished in our Global Information Services (GIS) organization, and drive even greater business value as we take CA Technologies and its customers to the next generation of IT.
â€œWe want to thank Steve for his leadership of GIS for the past four years. Steveâ€™s knowledge of CA Technologies and his expertise in running IT in a large corporation, will help us both articulate a point a view to policymakers, as well as expand our business presence in federal, state, municipal and international markets.â€
Will Mr Valdez's experience benefit the firm?
