Moves are afoot at ICL to turn the company into the monolithic organisation it once was, with a merger between outsourcing subsidiary CFM and services arm ICL Sorbus mooted as the first fruits of the policy.
Keith Todd, chief executive of ICL, canvassed senior executives of the company's various divisions at an annual strategy meeting held in Denmark, asking which outsourcing arm of ICL they favoured. According to one source there was a 50:50 split of opinion about which name and organisational set-up should be retained.
Although a representative at ICL UK said he was unable to confirm or deny the reports, he said that Todd did have a policy to pull together the disparate divisions at the company. ?It could be that there is some crossover and there may have been discussions around the subject,? he said.
He continued: ?He has said publicly that he wants the perception of ICL to be as one company. He wants people to regard it very much as people see EDS and not fragmented.?
