Weisler takes on global role at HP

by Stuart Wilson, Friday 21 June 2013

Vendor giant HP has confirmed changes to its senior executive line-up. Dion Weisler, currently senior VP for HP printing and personal systems (PPS) in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) becomes global executive VP for PPS at HP. Weisler replaces Todd Bradley in the role. Bradley will take on a new position at HP as executive VP of strategic growth initiatives.

Weisler, who joined HP in January 2012, will report to Whitman and join the company’s executive council. He has more than 23 years of experience in the IT industry. Prior to joining HP, Weisler was VP and COO of Lenovo’s product and mobile internet digital home groups.

Before that, he ran Lenovo’s businesses in Korea, Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), and Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). Weisler also enjoyed a successful 11-year career at Acer, where he served as managing director of Acer UK and also helped build Acer’s business in Central and Eastern Europe.

"Dion is one of our very best executives and his background is perfect given the challenges we face in the marketplace," said Meg Whitman, HP’s president and CEO. "Todd has left Dion a great legacy to build on. Today’s announcement is about putting our best qualified leaders into roles focused on restarting HP’s growth. HP is extremely fortunate to have a strong bench to draw on as we rebuild and restore the company."

In a newly created position, Bradley will work directly with Whitman on enhancing HP’s business in China and extending the company’s critical channel partner relationships around the world. Bradley also will work with Whitman on identifying potential partnership opportunities with early-stage companies that can contribute to HP’s long-term growth.

"There’s nothing more important to HP than our channel partners and the future of our business in China," said Whitman. "I’ve asked Todd to use his expertise to focus on these areas. I’ve also asked him to study the landscape of small companies and start-ups that could partner with HP to spur growth."

HP has appointed Nick Lazaridis to lead HP PPS-APJ on an acting basis until a permanent replacement is named. Lazaridis is currently COO of HP PPS-APJ, and is also responsible for the personal systems division in the region.
