Hogan to Depart HP Enterprise Business Unit, Replaced by Jan Zadak, HP EMEA Exec
Thomas Hogan, HP Enterprise Business executive vice president, sales and marketing, has told the company that he will depart at the end of May after five years in which he shepherded a noticeable expansion of the vendor's software portfolio.
HP said that Jan Zadak, HP EMEA managing director, will take Hogan's role effective May 1. Hogan said that he will remain with HP until May 31 and will work on transitioning Zadak to his new job.
"Shaping a world-class leadership team is one of my most important objectives, so I am particularly pleased that a global executive of Jan's experience and ability will take over this critically important role," said Léo Apotheker, HP president and chief executive. "I also want to recognize the many contributions that Tom has made to HP during his tenure with the company."
Zadak previously has held a number of senior management positions in HP's EMEA organization, focusing on solution selling, the company said.
"I am excited about the opportunity HP has to extend our market leadership by helping clients solve their toughest challenges," said Zadak. "I remain committed to building the premier sales and marketing organization in the industry," he said.
HP credited Hogan with initiating a multi-year sales and marketing transformation for its enterprise business unit, including accelerating sales hiring, building a world-class sales university and launching the vendor's recent Instant-On strategy.
"HP is the clear global leader in technology and innovation," said Hogan. "It has been my privilege to be a part of this organization the past five years," he said. "I will miss the great people at HP and have every confidence Léo, Ann and Jan have the right vision and strategy to lead HP to new heights," he said.
