Dell's current chief financial officer, Brian Gladden, will be departing the company soon -- but there won't be a gap in leadership.

The Round Rock, Texas-based corporation announced on Friday that Gladden, who has been CFO at Dell since 2008, has "chosen to pursue career interests outside of Dell."

However, Gladden will be staying on through the end of February to navigate the transition.

He will be replaced by Dell's chief accounting officer, Thomas Sweet, who will continue to report directly to the PC maker's founder and CEO, Michael Dell.

In prepared remarks, Dell himself described Sweet as "a key leader in our corporate finance organization for 16 years."

Sweet joined Dell in 1997 and has served in a number of different leadership roles since. He was appointed chief accounting officer last year.

Prior to Dell, Sweet worked at Price Waterhouse, now Price Waterhousecoopers, for more than a decade.

Moving along with the transition to operating as a private company, Dell is scheduled to report fiscal third quarter earnings results to current and prospective qualified institutional debt investors on Monday, January 27.
