    Top Executive at H.P. Steps Down

    Top Executive at H.P. Steps Down - NYTimes.com

    Ann Livermore, a fixture at Hewlett-Packard for nearly three decades, will step down from leading the company’s enterprise business as part of a broader management overhaul.

    The shake-up, announced on Monday, comes as Leo Apotheker, H.P.’s chief executive, tries to reinvigorate the company after a series of disappointing financial forecasts.

    Ms. Livermore, who joined H.P. out of graduate school and is one of the most prominent women executives in the technology industry, will become a board member, H.P. said. She will continue to serve in her current management role until a replacement is found.

    No, they asked her to step down, along with a few others - she is key enough that they asked her to be on the Board of Directors, which is probably a smart move.

    She took over HP as interim CEO after Hurd was let go. She stated, clearly, that she didn't want the job, permanently, back then.

    I believe Apotheker is trying to reduce the bureacracy by getting rid of some of the very old guard - they are likely resistant to the streamlining and changes he wants to institute.

    Hi all,

    I agree with you 100%. Leo is doing what many new CEO's to existing companies, pruning out dead wood, (so to speak) & as the expression goes "a new broom......"

    Take care,

    Jay
