HP’s CIO Naresh Shanker Successfully Separates And Then Transforms The Company
@Naresh Shanker was named CIO of @HP Inc. prior to the company’s separation from @Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) This was the apotheosis of a remarkable career. He had been an IT executive in the technology industry for many years, including the CIO role at Palm until its acquisition by HP. The separation would be the biggest challenge he would yet face in his career. At the time of the separation, there were some who believed that HP Inc. would be substantially weakened by this separation. Moreover, @MegWhitman, who had been the CEO of HP Inc. remained as Chairman of the company and would take over the CEO role of HPE. HP Inc. would be led by a new CEO Dion Weisler. Remarkably, the separation proceeded with few issues and was on time, and the company has flourished.
