Over And Out: 20 Notable HP Executive Exits From The Past Year


Mike Lynch

HP has no more contentious relationship with an alumnus than with Mike Lynch, the former CEO of Autonomy who was booted from HP in May 2012 and has spent most of the past six months locked in a public relations bout with his former employer.

HP has accused Lynch and Autonomy of squirrely accounting that led to the company being overvalued at the time HP bought it -- and which later forced HP to take an $8.8 billion charge related to what it called "serious accounting improprieties." Lynch has attempted to turn things back around on HP, going so far as to publicly demand HP's board of directors lay out the exact accusations and their reasoning.

Lynch, of course, is one of several former Autonomy executives that have also left HP.
