Former HPE CEO Meg Whiteman to Leave the Company’s Board of Directors

Meg Whitman, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise has decided not to appear for the reelection to the board of directors at the company on Thursday. In the year 2011, Whitman was appointed the CEO of Hewlett Packard and she also witnessed the split of the company in 2015 into two companies – Hewlett Packard, which retained its consumer-facing PC and printer businesses and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), focused on serving larger customers. Post the split, Whitman became the CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
By the end of 2017, Whitman declared to step down as HPE’s CEO after the speculations of her looking for a new job. Also, there were reports at the time that she even interviewed to be the CEO of Uber. After her departure in early 2018, HPE President Antonio Nieri was named as the new CEO.
“I thank Meg for her long dedication to HPE, helping us successfully launch as an independent company and execute a smooth leadership transition. We wish her every success in the future,” HPE chairwoman Patricia Russo said in the statement on Whitman’s departure from the board.
Currently, Whitman is serving as the CEO of Quibi, a video-on-demand startup founded by famed Hollywood exec Jeffrey Katzenberg. A new name, Jean Hobby would join HPE board of directors team. Right now, Jean Hobby is filling the place of Chief Strategy Officer at consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Also, she had once worked as a chief financial officer at the same company.
