EMC Plays Musical Chairs

Storage giant EMC Corp. shuffled its senior management yesterday.

EMC founder and executive chairman Dick Egan will assume the role of Chairman Emeritus, passing the baton to current CEO Mike Ruettgers. Joe Tucci, who currently serves as president and COO, will become president and CEO.

Egan founded EMC in 1979. Ruettgers has led EMC for the past nine years, taking the company from a startup, to a leading position among infrastructure vendors. A relative newcomer, Tucci joined EMC in January of last year, coming from Wang Global where he served as CEO. – Christopher McConnell
