In a reshuffling of its top management, Dell Inc. said that Peter Altabef, president of its services business unit, is leaving the company and will be replaced by Steve Schuckenbrock, who most recently led the vendor’s large enterprise business unit, and named Paul Bell as president of a newly combined public sector and large enterprise business unit.

The moves, effective by the end of April, 2011, leave Schuckenbrock, a former co-chief operating officer at Electronic Data Systems, Bell and Stephen Felice, head of Dell’s consumer, small and medium business unit, as the vendor’s top executives presiding over its key operating groups.

Dell officials suggested that moving Schuckenbrock to head up its services unit and combining its public and large enterprise business groups will help its efforts to emphasize services solutions to public and commercial customers and expand its portfolio of solutions.

“The changes we have announced today represent the continued evolution of Dell’s organizational structure,” said Michael Dell, Dell chairman and chief executive.

“As we continue to provide more differentiated and integrated IT solutions for our customers, it’s important that we take steps to further deepen our customer insights and relationships while strengthening our competitive position in the industry,” Dell said.

Altabef joined Dell in 2009 when the vendor acquired services outsourcer Perot Systems Corp. He had served as Perot’s president and chief executive beginning in 2004.

Schuckenbrock, who joined Dell in 2007, will be responsible for managing the vendor’s services operations, including global expansion, overseeing Dell IT, integrating recent services acquisitions such as its deal to acquire managed security services provider SecureWorks Inc., and facilitating a solutions-oriented approach companywide.

Bell has been with the company for 15 years, previously serving as president of its public business unit and manager of its EMEA operations and commercial business in the Americas.
