HP Inc., however, has yet to name a chief financial officer nor a chief marketing officer.

There have been a number of spinoffs -- or at least talks of spinoffs -- at many legacy tech brands these days.

HP's big split: Five reasons it's a good move HP's big split: Five reasons it's a good move Splitting PCs and printers from HP's enterprise business would leave both sides with more focus as well as more options in the future.

Hewlett-Packard has been at the forefront of this particular trend, for better or worse, since it announced a coming split last October.

The PC maker followed up on Monday with a newly unveiled leadership structure, divvying up titles and responsibilities between two units: HP Inc. and HP Enterprise.

Both will operate as independent, publicly-traded companies.

Meg Whitman will continue on in her role as CEO, but now specifically over the enterprise arm of the tech company. There are many familiar faces still on her team, including chief financial officer Cathie Lesjak.

As previously announced, Dion Weisler, executive vice president of HP's Printing and Personal Systems department, will lead HP Inc. as president and CEO.

HP Inc. will retain the Printer, Personal Systems, and Services and Solutions units. HP Enterprise will hold on to the Software group.

While there are more than a dozen first-level executives already assigned to each half of the brand, HP noted there are still a few gaps to be filled, including chief financial officer and chief marketing officer for HP Inc.
