HP names ex-SAP chief Apotheker as CEO

 

New CEO and President.

Hewlett-Packard has named former SAP chief executive Leo Apotheker as its new CEO and president.

Apotheker succeeds Mark Hurd, who was ousted from HP on August 6 for filing inaccurate expense reports related to a female marketing contractor. Hurd has since joined SAP rival Oracle as co-President.

HP's board also named Ray Lane as non-executive chairman. Lane is managing partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Both appointments are effective November 1, HP said.
