In 1992, after he decided to run for the presidency of the United States, Perot recruited Morton H Meyerson, who had served as EDS' president and CEO from 1979 to 1985, to take the helm at Perot Systems. Meyerson had been ranked as "The Best CEO in the Computer Services Industry," by the Wall Street Transcript for three consecutive years in the early 1980s. It was under Meyerson's leadership that Perot Systems forged its 25-year agreement with Swiss Bank Corp. in 1995. The contract eventually accounted for nearly 25 percent of Perot Systems' total revenues.
