Dell said Monday that Brian Gladden will become the company's new chief financial officer.

Gladden replaces Don Carty, who resigned effective June 13 (statement). He will remain on Dell's board of directors. Carty joined Dell in January 2007 and was credited with playing "a key role in reestablishing transparency and integrity in our financial practices," said CEO Michael Dell in a statement. Before coming to Dell (product reviews), Carty was retired--he left as CEO of AMR Corp., parent of American Airlines, in 2003.

Gladden had been president and CEO of SABIC Innovative Plastics Holding BV, formerly GE Plastics. SABIC had annual revenue of $7 billion and 10,000 employees.
