The evidence grows that Meg Whitman, former eBay CEO and California gubernatorial candidate, will be named the new HP CEO. The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Whitman’s appointment would be an embarrassing end to Leo Apotheker’s 11-month stint as HP’s CEO. It would be the second time in two years Apotheker has been forced out of a top technology job. He resigned from German business software maker SAP AG last year, after less than a year as CEO.
I hear Touchpads make fabulous parting gifts.
UPDATE: It’s a done deal.
