I have been in Hewlett-Packard for six months now and I really enjoyed working with diverse, energetic and spontaneous people in HP. When I came in the company they just recently change the CEO from the controversial Mark Hurd to Leo Apotheker, ex-CEO of SAP. And yesterday, September 22, 2011, HP announced it's new CEO, naming Meg Whitman, a former eBay chief and gubernatorial candidate in California. Actually, there were rumors circulating since the other day and apparently the stocks rose to 7 percent after this news was publicized.
As I was reading the news about this there are lot of mixed opinions about Meg Whitman carrying out the responsibility. Critics says she is not a good fit as she doesn't have the expertise in the hardware industry as what HP have but some says she may be a good fit as the asset to bring back the credibility of HP. Whatever they say, let's see what will be the new CEO's strategy.
