HP Names David Donatelli Executive Vice President, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 28, 2009

HP today announced that it has appointed David Donatelli to serve as executive vice president, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, effective May 5.

Donatelli will report to Ann Livermore, executive vice president of the Technology Solutions Group at HP, and lead the development of HP’s industry-leading server, storage and networking solutions.

His responsibilities will include the Enterprise Storage and Server (ESS) business unit, which had fiscal year 2008 revenues of $19.4 billion. This business unit contains Business Critical Systems, Industry Standard Servers, StorageWorks, ESS Infrastructure Software and Blades.

In an associated move, the HP ProCurve Networking business will also be part of Donatelli’s responsibility. Marius Haas, senior vice president and worldwide general manager of HP ProCurve, will report to Donatelli. As the future of computing moves toward converged platforms of servers, storage and networking, this combination accelerates the drive for efficiency and innovation, as well as increases the value customers receive from HP’s infrastructure solutions.

“I am pleased to have David join the HP leadership team,” said Mark Hurd, HP chairman and chief executive officer. “He will be a key contributor in driving growth and innovation for HP.”

A 22-year high-tech veteran, Donatelli joins HP from EMC Corporation, where he was president, EMC Storage Division. In this role he was responsible for the EMC storage platforms and related software businesses.

“David is an experienced business executive with a track record of driving growth and innovation,” said Livermore. “I look forward to what the team will accomplish under his strategic leadership.”

Donatelli replaces Scott Stallard, who after 34 years, is retiring from HP.
