HP to Launch New Organizational Structure this Fall
HP Inc. recently announced that current President and CEO Dion Weisler will be departing HP on November 1st, to be replaced by Enrique Lores, current head of HP’s printer group. Today, CRN also reported that Tuan Tran, general manager and global head of office printing solutions at HP, will assume Lores position on November 1st and lead the printer group.
Along with this, CRN reported that HP will:
“…launch a new commercial organization on Nov. 1 that will be led by its first-ever chief commercial officer, HP veteran Christoph Schell, in a move to simplify the company’s operating model and enable working more closely with partners, top HP executives told CRN.
“HP’s new commercial organization will see the company shifting from a three-region organizational structure to a set of 10 geographic markets, which will each be led by a newly appointed managing director who will report to Schell. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based PC and printer giant currently splits its organization between the Americas region, the EMEA region and the Asia Pacific and Japan region.”
Schell, who has two decades of experience with HP, is currently president of HP 3D printing and manufacturing Stephanie Dismore will serve as the new managing director for the North American region.
As for Tran, who will lead the printer group, he is credited for creating HP’s Instant Ink automatic ink-cartridge replacement program that HP says continues to grow and generate revenue.
In a post on its website, HP explained:
“As a first step, today we announced a new global operating model and organizational structure that will further strengthen our ability to serve our customers and partners around the world.
We are moving from our current structure – which is built around three large regions – to a single Commercial organization. Reducing the number of management layers in our go-to-market process will make us more agile and efficient, drive faster decision making, and increase flexibility and authority at the local level where it counts the most. Simply put, this brings us closer to our customers than ever before.”
