HP makes more executive changes

It has appointed a CIO and a new head of its Global Technology and Business Processes group

After a couple of high-profile departures, HP has announced some executive appointments, including a new CIO.

John Hinshaw is now executive vice president of Global Technology and Business Processes, the company said. He'll oversee IT and will be in charge of optimizing business processes across the company. Hinshaw previously worked for Boeing and before that, Verizon Wireless. He'll report to Meg Whitman, HP's new president and CEO.

Craig Flower, an HP veteran since 1984, will take on the role of senior vice president and CIO. He'll report to Hinshaw.

Flower once reported to former HP CIO Randy Mott, who left the company in June as part of a restructuring instituted by short-lived CEO Leo Apotheker. Mott was known for his restructuring of HP's IT, including a massive reduction of data centers.

The appointments follow a number of high-profile departures at HP recently and this year. Last month HP's chief strategy and technology officer, Shane Robison, retired, and the company said it wouldn't replace him. Earlier this week, Phil McKinney, vice president and chief technology officer for HP's Personal Systems Group, said he'd retire at the end of this year.

In June, well-known HP veteran Ann Livermore stepped down as head of the Enterprise Business but took on a board seat. Whitman, HP's new CEO, is taking over for Apotheker, who lasted less than a year and who replaced Mark Hurd, who had been ousted after allegations of sexual harassment.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
