Xerox has appointed Ursula Burns as president. She has also been elected to the company's board of directors. 

Burns was previously president of the company's Business Group Operations, responsible for global research, engineering, marketing and manufacturing of Xerox technology, supplies and related services.
As president, Burns retains leadership of these functions as well as the company's information management organization. She also assumes responsibility for corporate strategy, human resources, marketing operations, and global accounts for Xerox.
Burns reports to Xerox chairman and CEO Anne Mulcahy. The company's worldwide sales organisations, Xerox Global Services, and finance and legal teams will continue to report to Mulcahy.
"Xerox today offers the broadest portfolio of document management systems and software in our industry and in our history. That progress happened on Ursula's watch as she drove a technology strategy that launched more than 100 products in the last three years," says Mulcahy.
"At the same time, Ursula led activities that strengthened Xerox's business model so we're more efficient, competitive and profitable."
