The Blackstone Group has poached Dell Inc.'s head of mergers and acquisitions from the computer-maker.
Dave Johnson was senior vice president of corporate strategy at Dell. He'll serve as a partner at Blackstone, focused on the technology sector.
Blackstone said that Johnson would start work at the private equity giant within a couple of weeks.
Johnson joined Dell in 2009 from IBM Corp.; IBM unsuccessfully sued to block the move, alleging that Johnson had violated a non-compete agreement. During his four years at Dell, Johnson oversaw more than 20 acquisitions costing about $10 billion.
