Former Microsoft SVP Bill Veghte named HP’s chief strategy officer

Former Microsoft and current Hewlett-Packard exec Bill Veghte has been named HP’s new chief strategy officer.

Veghte will continue to serve in his current job of executive vice president of HP software, while taking on new responsiblities working with “HP’s senior business and technology leaders to help define the IT industry’s future and make certain HP continues to lead the way,” according to an HP news release. Veghte will also lead HP’s cloud and webOS open source initiatives.

Veghte joined HP in 2010 after two decades at Microsoft. He served as Microsoft’s senior vice president of marketing for Windows, leaving after another senior vice president, Steven Sinofsky, was named president of Windows.

HP’s previous chief strategy officer, Shane Robison, retired last fall after 11 years with the company, according to The Associated Press.
