Xerox Veteran Takes CEO Job At Curvature

Yehia Maaty Omar is the former senior vice president and chief delivery officer for Xerox and takes the reigns after former CEO Peter Weber split with Curvature at the end of May.


Curvature has named a new CEO, a Xerox veteran who brings more than 25 years of experience to bear for the third-party maintenance and multi-vendor IT lifecycle services company.

Yehia Maaty Omar is the former senior vice president and chief delivery officer for Xerox, leading the company’s worldwide technology and service delivery arm, which included field service as well as global remote support centers.

“I’m excited to join Curvature and leverage my experience to make an immediate impact in leading the company forward and delivering world-class IT support and services to our clients around the world,” said Omar. “Organizations around the globe increasingly demand greater flexibility and more affordable options for IT services and support. Not only can Curvature provide the end-to-end IT support services they need, our established global footprint ensures consistency and service delivery excellence.”

Omar was also president of developing markets overseeing Xerox in 140 countries around the world, and he is the former vice president and general manager of the company’s Latin America and Caribbean region. Attempts to reach Curvature for comment were unsuccessful.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based company’s previous CEO, Peter Weber, left in May by mutual agreement “to pursue other opportunities,” the company said in a statement. Weber was named CEO in September 2017 after serving seven months on the Curvature board of directors.

After Weber’s departure, Don Grantham, chairman of the Curvature board of directors – who spent 35 years in a range of executive roles at IBM, Sun Microsystems, HP and Microsoft.-- filled in as interim CEO.

“Yehia’s appointment as CEO will strengthen Curvature’s ability to deliver our short-term operational goals and long-range business vision as the undisputed global leader of TPM and vendor-agnostic IT services,” Grantham said in a statement. “His background and global experience will prove instrumental in helping us extend our market leadership while accelerating business success at scale.”

Curvature -- No. 63 on the 2019 CRN Solution Provider 500 -- expanded its global presence with the opening of its Sydney, Australia, office in May to build up its maintenance, advanced hardware replacement and IT asset lifecycle management under a consolidated worldwide contract. The company has 15,000 global customers, offices in 12 countries with more than 100 staffed service centers and over 600 parts locations globally.

Meanwhile, the company also announced Sreekant “Sree” Kasibhatta as the company’s new CFO.

During Kasibhatta’s 25-year career in international finance, he has worked with public and private-equity companies. Prior to his appointment, Kasibhatta was CFO for RGIS, a private equity-owned inventory services company. In that role, Kasibhatta arranged a successful refinancing as well as instituted new forecasting and divisional operating review processes to drive accountability. Kasibhatta started his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers in New Delhi and Singapore.
