HP's Board: Do You Trust These 11 People?


Ann Livermore

A 30-year HP veteran, Livermore bleeds HP blue. She joined the HP board of directors in June 2011 after stepping aside as executive vice president in charge of HP's Enterprise Business. Livermore was a longtime proponent of HP's aggressive services expansion. Long before HP was a big player in services, Livermore boasted in 2002 that HP was cherry-picking services talent from IBM Global Services and EDS, which HP acquired in August 2008 for $13 billion. Four years later, HP took an $8 billion write-down on the EDS deal. Livermore's HP board compensation is not listed on the latest HP proxy because she was still an HP employee in 2011. But a Computer Weekly story pegged her 2008 total compensation at $20.5 million. Livermore also sits on the board of United Parcel Service
