HP has appointed R. Todd Bradley to serve as executive vice president of its Personal Systems Group (PSG), which includes the company's notebook and desktop PCs, handhelds, monitors, workstations and related support services.
Bradley, 46, most recently spent four years at palmOne, Inc., three as president and chief executive officer. His appointment re-establishes PSG as a standalone business, following its combination in January 2005 with the Imaging and Printing Group (IPG). Vyomesh (V.J) Joshi, who had served as executive vice president of the combined Imaging and Personal Systems Group, will resume his former role as executive vice president of IPG.
Bradley has a 25-year management career with extensive international experience. Prior to palmOne, he spent three years at Gateway, Inc., most recently as executive vice president, global operations, and previously ran its operations in Europe, Middle East and Africa. He has also held senior roles at GE Capital Corp., The Dun & Bradstreet Corp. and FedEx Corp.
Bradley will join HP's Executive Council as its 10th member, marking HP's second expansion of the council this month.
