Our new leader brings proven track record and a focus on customers

I'm looking forward to introducing our community to Bill Veghte, our new executive vice president of the HP Software & Solutions organization. For those of you coming to SW Universe  you might get the opportunity to meet Bill face-to-face.  For the rest of you, let me tell you a little about our new leader. 


Bill is a Harvard educated marketing professional.  Before coming to HP, he worked at Microsoft for nearly two decades.  Most recently he ran the company's $15 billion global Windows® business including the launch of Windows 7 and Small Business Server 2003 product lines. 


While it's only natural for those of us at HP to be excited about our new leader, it's great to see that the IT press and analyst community are embracing the announcement as well.   Here are just a few snippets:


"'I'm a software guy,' Veghte said today in an interview. 'I've spent a lot of time with customers. They'd like to see H-P do more.'" - Bloomberg/BusinessWeek


"In choosing HP, Veghte said he looked at how software buying is changing and the emergence of cloud computing and other trends. 'We're still in the early stages of what is, in my opinion, the biggest change since client-server in how businesses use technology,' Veghte said. 'It's a great opportunity given where the market is going.'" - CNET


"HP has built a strong reputation as a technology powerhouse with a respected global brand and deep client relationships," said Veghte. "Software is a strategic part of driving greater innovation to our clients, and I look forward to leading the HP software team to continue to build a world-class business."-HP Press Release

As you can see, Bill has a commitment to putting the customer first.  He promises to listen and work with customers to grow the software business at HP.  I hope you share my enthusiasm as we begin a new chapter with new leadership.
