HP Appoints Marie Myers Chief Financial Officer
HP Inc. today announced that it’s appointed Marie Myers (above) as chief financial officer (CFO). Myers has been serving as acting CFO and chief transformation officer since October 2020. Today’s announcement is effective immediately.
In September 2020, HP announced that Steve Fieler, who served as HP Inc.’s CFO since 2018, was stepping down. HP then named Myers as interim CFO.
Myers brings more than 20 years of HP experience to the role. In addition to serving in numerous financial leadership positions, she’s said to have driven an aggressive agenda as HP’s chief transformation officer to strengthen the company’s digital capabilities in ways that better serve customers while reducing operating costs.
During her two decades with HP, Myers has served as HP’s Global Controller and Americas CFO of the company’s Personal Systems (PC) business unit, among other roles. She also served as HP’s finance lead during the separation of Hewlett-Packard Company in 2015, one of the largest and most complex separations in business history. Myers also previously served as CFO at UiPath, a robotics process automation company.
As HP’s chief transformation officer since June 2020, HP says Myers has successfully led the company’s Information Technology and Transformation organizations, with a focus on implementing technologies, tools, and processes that better serve customers, enable new business models, and deliver cost savings. She will continue to oversee this work until a new chief transformation officer is named.
HP President and CEO Enrique Lores commented: “Marie is one of HP’s most respected leaders and she has a proven track record of success throughout her career. As our acting CFO and chief transformation officer, she has consistently driven strong results, unlocked new sources of value, and positioned us well to deliver on our priorities. Marie’s strategic acuity, operational discipline and purpose-driven leadership will serve us well as we execute our strategy and drive long-term shareholder value.”
