AUSTIN, TX — Longtime Dell comms leader Jennifer "JJ" Davis has returned to the company after a nine-month stint with Tyson Foods to lead the computing giant’s global communications.

Davis has officially been named Dell’s senior VP of global communications, a role vacated late last year when Stella Low left the job.

Davis spent 18 years — the bulk of her career — as part of Dell’s comms team, ultimately working her way up to a VP role leading global communications for Dell products and operations. She departed Dell last May to lead Tyson’s corporate communications.

Davis assumes the role Low held for more than two years after arriving at the company via its historic acquisition of EMC. Before becoming Dell's global communications SVP, Low led global communications for EMC (now Dell EMC) for nearly four years, a period that included its $67bn sale to Dell, the largest tech deal in history at the time.

In December, Low told Holmes Report that she would be taking a “short break” to spend time with family before deciding on her next move.
