Xerox today announced that the company’s executive vice president and CFO Luca Maestri will be leaving the company for a position as Apple’s corporate controller.
“Luca is a stellar finance executive whose contributions have brought great value to the transformation of Xerox into a services enterprise,” Xerox CEO Ursula Burns said in a press release. “He’s helped strengthen our financial foundation, which will serve his successor, our company and our shareholders well for the long term.”
The Italian born Maestri himself noted: ”I came to Xerox with a strong belief in its strategic direction and I leave with even greater confidence in the company’s rich opportunity as a leader in outsourcing services and document technology. It’s been an incredible learning experience to be part of this major business shift for such a respected brand. I’m proud of our progress, and I know Xerox is on very firm footing for sustainable success.”
According to Maestri’s official bio, he joined Xerox back in February 2011 after 3+ years as CFO at Nokia Siemens Networks. Before that he held a number of senior executive finance positions with General Motors, including CFO of GM Europe, GM Brazil, and GM Thailand.
