Arctic Directory: Baker Hughes names new chief information officer

Baker Hughes Inc. said Jan. 2 that Archana “Archie” Deskus, an executive with experience leading information technology functions within the aerospace, industrials and consumer products industries, will join the global oilfield services company as its chief information officer effective Jan. 14.

Deskus comes to Baker Hughes from Ingersoll-Rand, where she was vice president and CIO.

“Archie’s deep IT executive leadership experience with large corporations across different industries will allow her to enhance our operational and business capabilities,” Baker Hughes’ President and CEO Martin Craighead said. “She will bring a great track record of building and developing high performing teams and of partnering with business leaders in executing large scale transformational projects.”

Deskus began her career with Pratt & Whitney Aircraft as a computer systems programmer and analyst. She went on to become the VP and CEO for Carrier North America, followed by four years as senior VP and CIO at Timex Group. Deskus received her Bachelor of Science degree in business administration and management information systems from Boston University and her Master of Business Administration from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

She replaces Clif Triplett, who spent four years as the company’s CIO.
