“Meg was instrumental in the formation of HP and in helping us to navigate early life as a separate company, bringing essential experience and continuity of leadership to our entire team,” said Dion Weisler, HP president and CEO.
“HP has now been a stand-alone company for almost two years and I’m proud to have helped get the company off to a great start,” said Whitman. “The HP board is among the most diverse in our industry, and the company has established a proven track record of successfully delivering on its commitments. I’m very confident in Dion’s continued vision and leadership as well as Chip’s ability to help guide the organization.”
Bergh has served as lead independent director of the HP board since March 2017. He is president and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., a position he has held since September 2011. Bergh previously worked at Procter and Gamble for 28 years in a variety of executive roles, including managing business in multiple regions worldwide. His last role with P&G was as group president.
“I have deep respect for Meg, Dion and the entire HP board and leadership team and am honored by this important role as HP accelerates its innovation agenda,” said Bergh.
