Hewlett-Packard has separated its personal-computer and printing units five months after combining the businesses. The company named PalmOne’s former chief executive officer, Todd Bradley, as head of PCs.
Vyomesh “VJ” Joshi, who ran the combined group, will resume his former role as head of the printer unit, the company said.
The business reshuffle is the first by CEO Mark Hurd since he took over April 1.
In making the change, he reversed a decision by predecessor Carly Fiorina that was intended to quash speculation Hewlett-Packard might spin off its PC business.
