While the appointments aren't a surprise, it's worth noting that several of HP's most senior executives will be staying close to Whitman as part of Enterprise:
- Cathie Lesjak, currently CFO will be with the new company.
- John Schultz will be the general counsel, retaining his role from the current company.
- Henry Gomez, probably Whitman's closest right hand, will keep his role as chief marketing and communications officer.
- John Hinshaw, currently executive VP for technology and operations, will be chief customer officer. He's a former Boeing exec who has gotten attention at HP for shaking up its day-to-day business practices by doing things like making HP a customer of Salesforce.com.
- Martin Fink will be the CTO and will continue to run Hewlett-Packard Labs, the research and development operation.
- Mike Nefkens will continue to run the long-troubled enterprise services unit, which is made up primarily of EDS, the IT services company HP acquired in 2008.
- Bill Veghte, who was briefly COO of HP, then later tapped to replace Dave Donatelli as head of the enterprise group, will continue in that role. The enterprise group sells servers, networking gear and other IT hardware.
- Robert Youngjohns will continue as head of the software unit. A former Microsoft exec, he was tapped to run Autonomy after Whitman fired Mike Lynch in 2012, and was later promoted to replace George Khadifa.
- Marten Mickos will lead HP Helion, the company's cloud services unit.
