HP adds five accomplished business leaders to Board of Directors

HP continually looks to bring new insight and perspective to the company.  To that end, today we announced that the Board of Directors appointed five new members, effective January 21:

Shumeet Banerji, chief executive officer of Booz & Company

Gary Reiner, former chief information officer of General Electric Company

Patricia Russo, former chief executive officer of Alcatel-Lucent

Dominique Senequier, chief executive officer of AXA Private Equity

Meg Whitman, former president and chief executive officer of eBay Inc.

Describing the new members, non-excutive chairman of the HP board Ray Lane noted, “Each is a widely respected and deeply experienced business leader, and together they will provide our board and management team with new insight and perspectives relating to HP’s business and the rapidly changing technology industry.”

We also announced today that incumbent directors Joel Hyatt, John Joyce, Robert Ryan, and Lucille Salhany will not stand for re-election at HP’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders in March.  At that time, the size of the board is expected to be 13 members.

We thank our current directors for their outstanding service to HP and look forward to the opportunity to work with our new members.
