HP Enterprise Group Executive VP Veghte Leaving HP
Hewlett-Packard reports that Bill Veghte, executive vice president of HP’s Enterprise Group (EG), will be leaving HP this summer. Since October, Veghte has been leading HP’s separation efforts for Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, working with Chris Hsu and HP’s Separation Management Office while continuing to manage the HP Enterprise Group led by Antonio Neri. HP is scheduled to separate into two companies, HP Enterprise, which will focus on enterprise business solutions, and HP, Inc., which will focus on PCs and printing.
Prior to his current role, Veghte served as HP’s chief operating officer (COO). As HP COO, he was responsible for helping to define HP’s strategy. When he arrived at HP in 2010, he served as HP’s chief strategy officer and executive vice president of HP Software.
Antonio Neri, who has been serving as leader of HP’s Enterprise Group, while Veghte has focused on the separation efforts, will officially take over the role as executive vice president and general manager. Neri has been at HP for over 20 years, working across many lines of business and in many roles. Most recently, he has worked to drive HP’s computer-server business. Prior to that, he led HP’s networking and technology services business. HP’s Enterprise Group management will continue to report to Neri.
Chris Hsu, who will assume the role of COO for HP and HP Enterprise upon HP’s separation, will continue to lead HP’s separation.
