Meyerson is recognized as the operational and financial genius of Electronic Data Systems (EDS). During his CEO tenure, EDS grew from a $200 million consulting business into a $4 billion large-scale systems consulting enterprise generating over $190 million in earnings. Meyerson presided over the massive growth that, at one time, included the addition of 30,000 employees in less than eighteen months. Despite the whirlwind growth, Meyerson built a formidable management team and maintained a highly organized approach in the delivery of services.
