HP Board Gets New Chair Amid Criminal, Congressional Investigation
Hewlett Packard Chairwoman of the Board Patricia Dunn resigned Friday in the latest fallout from a scandal involving the company’s alleged illegal investigation tactics in trying to find a leak on their own board.
HP chief executive Mark Hurd will take over for Dunn earlier than expected. He was to assume control in January as part of a previously announced realignment. Dunn, who authorized the investigation in which board memebers’ phone records were illegally retrieved, claimed to have no knowledge of the methods employed.
Kevin Hunsaker, HP’s chief ethics officer, and Anthony Gentilucci, HP’s global investigations unit manager in Boston, are also being ousted according to a source who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
