After a 19-year career with Hewlett-Packard (HP) in Australia, HP South Pacific managing director, Paul Brandling, has announced his departure.
HP Enterprise South Pacific media and analyst relations manager, Stephanie Aye, said Brandling’s leadership during that time as “outstanding”.
It included 12 years as country managing director.
“During that time HP has continued to grow and deliver great value to consumers, business and government in Australia and New Zealand,” Aye said.
“We thank him for his leadership and commitment to our clients, stakeholders and employees, and we wish him well in his retirement from HP.”
