Former HP CEO Off News Corp.’s Board
Former Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) CEO Mark Hurd has lost another board seat — this one with News Corp. A director with the company since 2008, Hurd has not been nominated for re-election to the board, according to a proxy filing released Tuesday. News Corp.’s next annual meeting, scheduled for Oct. 15., will be his last. Evidently, Hurd’s ignominious ouster from HP following an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment did not sit well with the company. News Corp. (which owns this site) has not nominated anyone to replace him.
