HP has named John W McCain as the new boss of its services arm.
McCain, who has done time at EDS and Capgemini, becomes senior vice president and general manager of HP Services replacing Steve Smith who left for "personal reasons".
He will report to HP Technology Solutions Group executive vice president Ann Livermore who was acting services boss.
McCain told Information Week he will set up a special sales team to sell US companies the benefits of offshoring, and may set up a similar team in the UK. HP has three centres in India.
HP has not been seen as a big player for offshored services and analysts questioned whether they had left it too late. More from Info Week here.
