Kenilworth-based technology solutions provider begins leadership succession plan

Fred D’Alessandro transitions to new role at Diversified, names Eric Hutto of Unisys as the new CEO

Diversified, a Kenilworth-based technology solutions provider, said Wednesday that its longtime founder and CEO, Fred D’Alessandro, is passing the torch and made the decision to transition from CEO to executive chairman.

Eric Hutto was named the new CEO. With more than 20 years of executive-level experience in information technology services and consulting, Hutto comes from Unisys, where he most recently served as president and chief operating officer.

D’Alessandro will now focus his energy and attention on strategic relationships, mentoring the next generation of talent and supporting the new CEO in the execution of his strategy and vision.

“The past 29 years have been such a journey here at Diversified,” D’Alessandro said. “We have experienced tremendous growth, and I am really excited to transition into this new role as executive chairman. Even though I am not going anywhere anytime soon, I know the company is in good hands with Eric. With his experience, he will take the company to even greater heights, and I look forward to contributing to that success.”

In addition to his years spent at Unisys, Hutto’s background includes a strong list of household names, many of which he has led the charge at in organizational transformation and exponential growth.

“As I step into this role, I can’t wait to dive in and take on the challenge of helping further our growth and capabilities,” Hutto stated. “Diversified is already well-respected in the industries that know us, but we’re ready to show the whole world what a truly valuable business partner we can be to meet any modern technology needs.”
