William (Bill) Nuti is chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of NCR Corporation, a global technology company with 22,400 employees and 2008 revenue of approximately $5.3 billion. Under Nuti's leadership, NCR is transforming itself into, as one reporter recently called it, "a self-service giant," leading how the world connects, interacts and transacts with business. NCR’s assisted- and self-service solutions and comprehensive support services address the needs of Financial Services, Retail and Hospitality, Travel and Gaming, Entertainment, Healthcare and Public Sector, and Software and Technology Services industries in more than 100 countries.
Nuti has a wealth of global and industry-specific experience in high technology. Before joining NCR in 2005, Nuti served as president and CEO of Symbol Technologies where he led a challenging, but highly successful turn-around effort. Under Nuti's leadership, Symbol returned to profitability for the first time in five years, and from 2002 to 2004 increased revenue growth by 24 percent.
Nuti joined Symbol following more than 10 years at Cisco Systems where he held positions of increasing responsibility, advancing to the dual role of senior vice president of the company’s Worldwide Service Provider Operations and senior vice president of U.S. Theater Operations. In these roles, he led Cisco’s field operations, technical operations, professional services, marketing and U.S. sales divisions. Prior to that, Nuti served as president of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and more than doubled Cisco’s revenue to over $7 billion in the region. Prior to his EMEA assignment, Nuti was senior vice president of the Asia/Pacific region and increased revenue over 200 percent, while developing key markets such as China and India.
Since Nuti joined NCR in 2005, he has led the company to consecutive year-over-year profit improvement every quarter while growing revenues consistently. NCR's stock has appreciated by more than 50 percent during his tenure. From 1998 to 2006, NCR's compound annual growth rate was less than 1 percent, compared to a growth rate of more than 8 percent in 2007. In add
