HP has announced that CEO Dion Weisler will step down "for family reasons." The successor will be Enrique Lores, current president of the multinational press department. Lores starts office on November 1st.
In a statement, the technology clarifies that Weisler will remain as chairman of the board of directors until April, when the annual meeting of shareholders will be held.
Weisler was named CEO in 2015 when the company decided to split into two groups – HP Inc., responsible for the printer and computer business, and HPE, which is dedicated to the business sector.
Lores has worked at HP for over 30 years, starting as a trainee engineer. In 2018 he was involved in the development of a zero gravity printer designed to equip the International Space Station.
