HP makes Veghte strategy chief, head of webOS open-source

HP promotes Bill Veghte to CSO

HP reshuffled its leadership again on Tuesday with the decision to promote Bill Veghte to Chief Strategy Officer. The step up, which will still give him responsibilities as VP of Software, will see him head not just the company's more recent cloud initiatives but the operation of open-sourcing webOS. Veghte has the "knowledge and vision" to keep the company on top, CEO Meg Whitman said.

Veghte only just joined HP in 2010 after having left Microsoft's core Windows business and helped launching Windows 7. Since switching over, he has been one of HP's rising stars, growing the software side of the company 18 percent.

His ability to push software could be vital for a company that's bleeding PC share and has at least temporarily abandoned webOS mobile hardware.
