Moultrie to the newly created role of director of communications for

Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).



Prior to taking up his new job, Moultrie was vice president of

communications for Compaq Services based in the US, a post he also held

with Digital Worldwide prior to its purchase by Compaq last May. There,

Moultrie had operational responsibility for co-ordinating regional

communications teams worldwide.



His role with EDS will be to develop internal and external

communications, marketing programmes and a public affairs strategy. He

will oversee the work of each country-specific team and report directly

to the EMEA executive board. Moultrie is British and lived in the UK

until joining Digital.



’With his vast experience and knowledge of the industry, Gordon will

significantly enhance and improve our brand,’ said John Bateman, vice

president of EDS EMEA.



EDS, which helps design large IT systems and trains people to use them,

has more than 110,000 employees working in 45 countries. In 1997 its

turnover was pounds 9.5 billion, with the EMEA region, its fastest

growing market, contributing 25 per cent of the total.
