HP Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President
|"Everything we do must be for the customer. If it's not, then we need to reconsider why we're doing it."
Mark Hurd joined HP in early 2005 as chief executive officer and president and was named chairman of the board of directors in September 2006.
With the goal of establishing HP as the world’s leading technology company, Hurd has sharpened HP’s strategic focus and concentrated its investments on three long-term growth opportunities: next-generation enterprise data center architecture and services; technologies for always connected, always personal mobile experiences; and a broad transition from analog to digital imaging and printing across the consumer, commercial and industrial markets.
At the same time, Hurd has improved HP’s operating efficiency and execution as well as its financial performance and customer focus.
The result has been increasing growth and profitability, greater value for shareholders and customers, and a stronger competitive position in global IT markets.
Between the company’s 2004 and 2008 fiscal years, HP grew revenue from $80 billion to $118.4 billion and more than doubled its earnings per share.
Prior to joining HP, Hurd spent 25 years at NCR Corp., where he held a variety of management, operations, and sales and marketing roles.
He was named chief operating officer in 2002 and chief executive officer in 2003.
Under his leadership, NCR reignited growth in its core businesses and improved from a net loss of $2.25 per share in 2002 to net income of $3.03 in 2004.
Hurd is additionally a member of the News Corp. board of directors.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1979 from Baylor University.
