HP Confirms PC and Printer Groups Merging

Posted by at 9:29 am on March 21, 2012

HP on Wednesday morning confirmed rumors that it was merging its PC and printer groups. The step would unite the Personal Systems Group with the Imaging and Printing Group to form a new Printing and Personal Systems Group. PSG’s existing head, Todd Bradley, would take charge of the new division.

One cost of the move will be the departure of executive VP Vyomesh Joshi, who would be retiring as a result of the merged groups.

The step would be intended to “rationalize HP’s go-to-market strategy” and related elements like the part supply chain. It also hoped for “innovation” by having the two groups influence the other, although it simultaneously admitted that there were “opportunities for cost savings” that might be the primary motivators.

Some marketing and sales efforts were also being streamlined, uniting corporate sales under an Enterprise Group and its cross-division marketing under its CMO Marty Homlish. Communications staff would go under CCO Henry Gomez, which when combined with the CMO responsibilities would create a “more powerful voice.”
