Hogan Out as HP Enterprise Sales VP; Jan Zadak In
Hewlett-Packard announced that Thomas E. Hogan, its executive VP for enterprise business sales and marketing, is leaving the company.
Hogan will be the second high-level exec to exit in as many months, following word last month that chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices had poached Michael Wolf, HP’s former VP for information technology as its new CIO, and it’s the latest departure from HP’s senior ranks amid the unfolding management shakeup that started when the company named Léo Apotheker as its CEO.
HP named Jan Zadak (pictured), managing director for HP Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as Hogan’s replacement, starting May 1. Zadak came to HP by way of its acquisition of Compaq, having joined that company in 1997. He held several senior management roles in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, including stints in Central and Eastern Europe. Zadak, who appears in a video below shot in 2008 at an HP event in Barcelona, is a native of the Czech Republic. Before Compaq he spent five years working for Olivetti.
