BT taps Kim McMann to oversee U.S. and Canada operations

BT's (NYSE: BT) appointment of HP alum Kim McMann as president of U.S. and Canada divisions is a clear indication that the UK-based incumbent sees strong opportunities in the U.S. market.

Reporting to BT Global Services CEO Jeff Kelly, McMann will also oversee a new global operation serving multinational customers in the consumer packaged goods vertical market.

In her most recent role at HP, McMann most recently led the company's Asia Pacific Enterprise Services' technology outsourcing business. Like Kelly, McMann also carved out her skills at consulting firm EDS where she oversaw the government health care industry segment.

The appointment of McMann seems to be part of a retooling that BT Global Services' president Jeff Kelly is taking to reshape BT's once struggling Global Services management team.

Since being appointed as the President of BT Global Services, Jeff Kelly not only brought on McMann, but in September appointed AT&T veteran Tom Regent on board as the unit's new President of Global Sales & Marketing.
