CEO Antonio Neri On Why HPE ‘Outperformed’ Dell, Cisco

'We outperformed every single competitor,' says HPE CEO Antonio Neri. 'Everyone that was put in front of us we beat them this quarter. Cisco was down. Arista was down. Juniper was down. Ruckus was down. Ubiquiti was down. We were the only one that had a plus in front of it.'

How big a deal is the nomination of Charles Noski—a 16-year member of Microsoft’s board of directors—to the HPE board?

I personally became a fan of Chuck as we went through the process. Remember, one of roles for the chairman and nominating committee is to establish the right diverse and experienced board that will help continue to drive the strategy and the transformation.

There was an opportunity here to bring a very seasoned, experienced and transformative leader. Chuck was at Microsoft for 15- plus years. He oversaw the transformation of Microsoft. So he has deep, deep insight on culture and leadership and also business models. He is a very savvy executive who did many transformations himself at AT&T and other companies. I am extremely excited about it.

On the other hand, I am disappointed that one of our board members—Mike Angelakis [chairman and CEO of private investment firm Atairos] is not up for re-election because he had too many commitments and priorities right now. Mike is a friend and is also available for guiding and counseling. But I have to say Chuck is a world-class addition to our board, which is already a very strong board—very diverse, as you know. Almost 50 percent of our board is female—unheard of in Silicon Valley and probably in the industry.

All of our board members are independent. I am the only dependent. Everybody else is independent. I think we have very, very solid governance with incredibly committed people.
