Hewlett Packard Enterprise India (HPE) has undergone a major change at the top management level from November 1 in order to gain more “efficiency” and “agility”.
Meg Whitman, President and CEO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said the company has undergone organisational changes to boost company’s momentum.
“After we complete the spin of our Enterprise Services business in March 2017, our goal is to create a standalone company that is more efficient, agile and innovative right out of the gate. To that end, we are implementing some organisational changes to make HPE even stronger and more successful to win in the marketplace,” Whitman added.
As per the information technology major, Neelam Dhawan, Vice President and General Manager–Enterprise Group and Country Managing Director (MD) for HPE India, will assume regional leadership role at APJ level.
She will now lead the Global Industries, Strategic Alliances and Inside Sales for HPE Asia Pacific and Japan. However, Dhawan will continue in her role as Country MD for India. Som Satsangi, who was working as Vice President, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, HPE India, will now be the new leader for the Enterprise Group at HPE India.
Som has close to two decades of association with HP in varied senior roles with HP (now HPE) since 2003 and earlier with Compaq (acquired by HP) since 2003. The leadership handling HPE India channels has been realigned too.
The current channel chief of HPE India, Barun Lala, will take over a new role at HPE India. Lala, with HP since 2002, will be the India leader for the Global Industries, Strategic Alliances and Inside Sales at HPE India.
Joybrata Mukherjee will be the new channel chief as the India leader for the Channels, SMB and Service Provider at HPE India.
This role was earlier handled by Lala. Mukherjee was country head for HP Storage Business at Hewlett Packard Enterprise India.
