Dell Trades One Known CFO for a New Known CFO (DELL, GE)

May 19, 2008 by Douglas A. McIntyre

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL) has announced that Don Carty, Vice Chairman and CFO, will step down from the company.  He will remain a board member, but will end his direct duties on the effective date of June 13.

This is obviously something that wasn’t an overnight development because of the transition announcement.  Dell is naming Brian Gladden as the new CFO with the same June 13 effective date.  Gladden was President & CEO of SABIC Innovative Plastics Holding BV.  If that sounds familiar it is because this was formerly GE Plastics before General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) took that out of its portfolio.

Gladden also commented that he’s joining Dell at a time of transformation.
