ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) -- Computer maker Dell says Don Carty, the chief financial officer hired a year and a half ago to help lead the company's turnaround plan, has resigned.
He will be replaced by Brian Gladden, chief executive of SABIC, formerly known as GE Plastics.
Round Rock, Texas-based Dell Inc. said Monday Gladden will join the company May 20 as senior vice president, and assume the CFO role on June 13.
Carty, a former chairman of American Airlines, has been CFO since Jan. 1, 2007. Chief Executive Michael Dell says Carty has played a ''key role'' in re-establishing the transparency and integrity of Dell's finances.
Gladden has served as president and CEO of SABIC Innovative Plastics Holding BV, formerly GE Plastics, a maker of polymers used by electronics, office equipment, computer and auto manufacturers.
