5 Companies That Came To Win This Week


Partners Optimistic About HP Exec Shuffle

The game of executive musical chairs continued at HP Wednesday when the company said Enterprise Group Executive Vice President Dave Donatelli would be reassigned. It was later announced that COO Bill Veghte (pictured) will be charge of the company's struggling Enterprise Group business.

HP partners are optimistic Veghte's appointment will be positive for the channel.

"I am very excited for the change," said Bob Venero, CEO of Future Tech. "I believe this change comes because of [HP CEO] Meg Whitman's focus to enhance and provide a more channel-friendly and driven environment like the PPS [Printing and Personal Systems] organization has done under [HP channel chief] Scott Dunsire. Future Tech has struggled with HP and its enterprise team under Donatelli's leadership, whereas our HP PPS business has flourished under the supervision and guidance of Dunsire."
