Burns said, “When we first undertook the structural review of the company, I deliberately took leadership off the table, particularly my role. My decision-making process has been grounded in making the best decisions for Xerox and for me personally, in that order. We’re well underway with the CEO searches for both the document technology and the BPO companies.” Burns added that it was, “a little bit of a sad day for me, but a happy day as well.”
