HP Makes High Profile Management Changes, Aims Stability

According to new media reports, Hewlett Packard - the largest computer maker in the world is making some high profile changes in its management team.

Apparently, the company seems to be making these changes with the view of getting back on its feet under the leadership of its new chief executive officer Leo Apotheker. Mr. Apotheker took charge of HP last September following the departure of Mark Hurd amidst of some severe mud-slinging.

Ever since Mr. Hurd was shown the door, followed by Mr. Apotheker’s taking control of the wonky ship, the company has been trying hard to sail steady.

As reports are indicating, Ann Livermore, who was acting as the chief of HP’s Enterprise Business until now, will be joining as a new member to the board of directors.

In addition to that, the company has made it clear that Bill Veghte, the executive VP of software, Jan Zadak, the executive VP of global sales as well as Dave Donatelli, executive VP of enterprise servers, storage, networking and technology services, will be reporting to the chief executive officer from now on.

"In our ongoing effort to accelerate our progress in executing our strategy, we will continue to make the necessary changes that streamline our operations, drive focus and agility, and position us for success," Apotheker said in a statement.
