“In the new world that is emerging, business continuity will depend on technology that advances IT resiliency, empowers remote workforces, and creates new experiences. Through the power of technology, we can reinvigorate customer engagement and help organizations reimagine their business models. HPE has a very important role to play in all of this, and it’s critical that we accelerate our pivot to becoming the edge-to-cloud-as-a-service company,” Neri wrote in a blog.

Neri’s announcement includes changes in business group leadership, labs, a technology road map and software leadership, sales and operations leadership, and global function leadership.

Breaking Down the Reorganization

  • The seven business group leaders will now report directly to HPE CEO Antonio Neri. They include: Tom Black, storage; Pradeep Kumar, Pointnext technology service; Neil MacDonald, compute; Keerti Melkote, intelligent edge; Irv Rothman, HPE Financial Services; Pete Ungaro, high-performance computing and mission-critical solutions; and, Keith White, who leads the new GreenLake cloud services business group.

  • Labs, technology road map and software leadership are seeing the creation of a new dual role that embraces innovation and design, and development of HPE’s software-defined portfolio. The company appointed Kumar Sreekanti, HPE chief technology officer and head of software. Mark Potter, chief technology officer, who also manages Hewlett Packard Labs, will retire this summer.

  • Sales and operations leadership — Heiko Meyer leads sales as chief sales officer, and Pat Collins, who leads global operations, including supply chain, will report to Neri.

  • HPE’s five global function leaders will continue to report to the CEO as part of the company’s executive committee. They include: Jim Jackson, chief marketing officer; Alan May, chief people officer; Tarek Robbiati, chief financial officer; John Schultz, chief legal and administrative officer and head of HPE’s transformation office; and Jennifer Temple, chief communications officer.
