Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) has named Todd Bradley, head of its printing and personal computer business, to the newly created position of executive vice president of strategic growth initiatives.
In the new position, Bradley will work with Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman on improving relations with China, as well as channel partner relations. He has also been charged with the task of helping Whitman form partnerships with early-stage companies that can help fuel HP’s own growth, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“There’s nothing more important to H-P than our channel partners and the future of our business in China,” said Ms. Whitman. “I’ve asked Todd to use his expertise to focus on these areas. I’ve also asked him to study the landscape of small companies and startups that could partner with H-P to spur growth.”
