HP shuffles Blighty management pack

Steve Gill heads to Korea

Hewlett-Packard has hired Nick Wilson as its new UK and Ireland managing director, replacing Steve Gill.

The company confirmed the reshuffle today. HP told The Register that Gill had been shifted to a new role in Korea, where he will lead the management team.

Prior to that, Gill had held the keys to Wilson's new office for seven years. We asked HP if Gill's new job in Korea represented a promotion at HP.

"This move is the result of HP's talent management scheme, which ensures that we can internally build key individuals into true global leaders," said a company spokeswoman.

Wilson, who takes up his new role with immediate effect, will report directly to HP EMEA boss Francesco Serafini.

Prior to joining the world's number one PC vendor, Wilson had spent over two decades in the IT biz. Most recently he worked at services outfit CSC heading up the firm's UK, Nordics, Middle East and Africa tentacle as president and CEO. ®
