HP has appointed Christoph Schell as general manager of its imaging and printing and consumer group for South Pacific.
The vice-president posting follows the departure of former head, Rebekah O'Flaherty, who left for a similar posting in the UK and Ireland.
A spokesperson said Schell would assume the role by the end of April. He was currently working as solution partners organisation manager in Europe.
The announcement comes three months after O'Flaherty moved to head up the IPG division in the UK. She held the VP role for South Pacific for four years.
More details on Schell's appointment will be released upon his arrival this month.
