While Byrum could not be reached for comment, several sources said Byrum's move was prompted by grief over the sudden death last spring of his wife (and EDS PR colleague) Diane Coffman, whom he had married March 11.

'I think his primary motivation was just in getting out of Dallas, period,' said one person close to the situation.

Back at EDS, Jeff Baum, formerly director of financial media relations for Lucent, has signed on to fill Byrum's shoes.
