Ann Livermore, who led HP's enterprise services group, is stepping down from day-to-day management to become a board member, amid a major shake-up at the company. Among the moves, Livermore's departure is probably the largest. Livermore has frequently been a chief executive candidate, but never made the final cut. She will remain leader of HP Enterprise Services until her replacement is named.
The reorganisation is designed to get all customer-facing units reporting to Apotheker. Dave Donatelli, who leads HP's critical servers, storage, networking and technology services unit; Bill Veghte, executive vice president of software; and Jan Zadak, head of sales, will all report to Apotheker. The HP chief executive said that the new reporting structure should improve focus, agility and execution.
