Former governor joins EDS

Electronic Data Systems Corp. has hired former Michigan Gov. John Engler as president of its state and local business. In addition, Engler will serve as vice president of EDS Government Solutions for North America, the company's federal unit.

Engler was governor of Mi-chigan for 12 years. His expertise and national stature should help EDS with its state Medicaid business as well as boost EDS' standing with local governments, analysts said.

While governor of Michigan, Engler created the state's Department of Information Technology. The cabinet-level office led state agencies in the development of online government services and the state's portal. Engler also established the e-Michigan Office to lead in e-government initiatives and policy development.
