“DISH is undergoing a tremendous transformation as an entertainment provider and as an employer. We need a special kind of leader to run our HR group and establish DISH as one of the best employers in our industry,” said Joe Clayton, DISH president and CEO. “Mike is a transformative executive who has proven his leadership within DISH, in our industry and in our community.”

In his new capacity, McClaskey is responsible for all recruiting, benefits administration, compensation, and leadership and organizational development for approximately 22,000 DISH team members.

“My charge is to establish DISH as the employer of choice for the best people in our industry and our communities,” said McClaskey. “I have three major goals: to hire, develop and retain great people, to grow our leadership depth, and to foster a culture rooted in pride, adventure and winning.”

DISH Vice President John Swieringa was promoted to senior vice president and succeeds McClaskey as the DISH CIO.

Before joining DISH in 2007, McClaskey spent 12 years at Perot Systems, where he served as the corporation’s vice president of infrastructure solutions and chief information officer, responsible for IT strategy and operating customer-facing network, service center and data center outsourcing operations.

Under McClaskey’s direction, DISH’s IT department received CIO magazine’s 25 th annual CIO 100 award for undertaking a massive enterprise-wide information technology overhaul that advanced DISH’s ability to deliver customer service and manage its national operations.
