HP Announces Change in Their Leaders in the Printing and Personal SystemsJuly 26, 2013 No Comments
Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced last month that Todd Bradley, their executive vice president of their Printing and Personal Systems will step out of this role to take the new position of the executive vice president for the Strategic Growth Initiatives
Bradley will work directly with HP’s president and chief executive office, Meg Whitman, on their plan to enhance the business in China and expanding the company’s critical channel partner relationship around the world. He will also work with Whitman in regards of identifying the potential partnership opportunities with early-stage companies that can contribute to HP’s long-term growth.
“There’s nothing more important to HP than our channel partners and the future of our business in China,” said Whitman. “I’ve asked Todd to use his expertise to focus on these areas. I’ve also asked him to study the landscape of small companies and startups that could partner with HP to spur growth.”
Bradley’s potential and achievement during the past year of his leadership as the executive vice president for the Printing and Personal Systems has bought HP as the No. 1 PC vendor in the world and expanded its worldwide commercial channel partner organization: “Bradley also is deeply familiar with HP’s China operations and global supply chain. He received the prestigious Friendship Award from China in 2009, the highest accolade presented to foreign citizens who have made outstanding contributions to China’s development.”
On the other hand, Dion Weisler, currently senior vice president for HP PPS in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), will take Bradley’s role as executive vice president, PPS, HP. He will report to Whitman and join the company’s executive council.
“Dion is one of our very best executives and his background is perfect given the challenges we face in the marketplace,” said Whitman. “Todd has left Dion a great legacy to build on. Today’s announcement is about putting our best qualified leaders into roles focused on restarting HP’s growth. HP is extremely fortunate to have a strong bench to draw on as we rebuild and restore the company.”
