Look out CSC employees & customers! This guy was the CFO when Sprint was making boneheaded financial decisions like merging two completely disparate cellular netowrks into one company and then the total liquidation of all company assets like the local telephone division (Sprint LTD, then Embarq, Sprint North Supply, The Yellow Pages Division, all WAN and wireless network infrastructure, real estate holdings, company fleet (except biz jets of course), leaving behind nothing but a shell of a company with only it's brand recognition and a crappy credit rating left to leverage. Magic 8 Ball says "nothing good will come from this".
