HP Appoints Cathy Lyons as Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer
Press release from the issuing company
PALO ALTO, Calif.--June 6, 2005-- HP today announced that it has appointed Cathy Lyons, a 26-year company veteran, to serve as executive vice president and chief marketing officer (CMO), with immediate effect.
Lyons assumes CMO responsibilities from Mike Winkler, who will focus solely on his other role as executive vice president of HP's Customer Solutions Group, in which he leads the company's sales and marketing efforts for enterprise, public sector and small and medium business customers.
Lyons, 48, will report to HP Chief Executive Officer and President Mark Hurd and join the company's Executive Council. She most recently served as senior vice president of Business Imaging and Printing within the Imaging and Personal Systems Group (IPSG). Previously, she was vice president and general manager of the Supplies business, running worldwide operations for ink and LaserJet printing supplies.
"HP is dedicated to aggressively driving a comprehensive global marketing strategy," said Hurd. "Cathy's broad, international experience, her thorough knowledge of HP and her long track record of delivering results make her uniquely qualified to lead this effort."
A successor for Lyons' previous role within IPSG will be announced shortly.
