NTT Data Appoints Bob Pryor as CEO

Tokyo-based consulting and software development firm NTT Data appointed a new CEO this week. The company selected Bob Pryor to take the place of John McCain.

McCain served as CEO since 2010 and was named the company’s new Executive Chairman in April. He will serve on the Board of Directors for NTT Data Corporation.

Pryor, who has been with the company since 2016, steps into the role of CEO after serving most recently as COO. Regarding Pryor’s performance, McCain said, “As COO, Bob played an essential role in setting this strong foundation, including the successful integration of the former Dell Services, and he will do a great job as CEO leading this company and our clients into the future.”

In his new position, Pryor will oversee business operations and is tasked with driving growth. He will also serve on the NTT DATA Services Board of Directors. “We will continue to operate with a client-first approach to advance our clients’ digital agendas, while focusing on operating efficiently and delivering the solutions that drive sustained growth,” Pryor said in the press release.

Founded in 1988, NTT Data has 110,000+ employees across Japan, the Americas, EMEA, APAC, and China. Earlier this month, the company acquired DevOps firms MagenTys to complement its existing digital transformation capabilities. At FinovateSpring earlier this year, NTT Data demoed Tready, a social community investment platform.
