News: CEO Meg Whitman unveils more organisational changes.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is making organisational changes as it looks towards the completion of its Enterprise Services business spin-off in March 2017.
Martin Fink is retiring as HPE’s chief technology officer and head of Hewlett Packard Labs after more than 30 years with the company.
HPE CEO Meg Whitman wrote on a corporate blog, "Martin has had a remarkable career, driving some of our most important initiatives, including our cloud, open source and Linux strategies and leading the Business Critical Systems division."
With Fink’s departure, HPE is moving Hewlett Packard Labs into the Enterprise Group under Antonio Neri.
To centralise and simplify the organisation in order to drive better sales execution, HPE said it will align its sales teams into a single global sales organisation within the Enterprise Group.
Peter Ryan, currently senior vice president and managing director of the Enterprise Group’s EMEA region, will lead the group. It will also include regional and indirect sales.
The company will also centralise product marketing, e-commerce and customer advocacy groups into a single marketing organisation under chief marketing and communications officer Henry Gomez.
The IT and Cyber Security teams will move over to COO Chris Hsu.
Whitman also announced the departure of John Hinshaw, who earlier ran technology and operations at the company, but more recently took the title chief customer officer.
Whitman said: I’m excited about the future of HPE, and I’m confident that these changes will help us accelerate our strategy and continue to win in the marketplace."
