HP has confirmed former volume sales director, Janice Cox, as the new vice-president and general manager of its Personal Systems Group (PSG). She replaces Tony Bill, who was promoted to head up the vendor’s Asia-Pacific commercial volume business in September.
According to an HP statement, Cox will be responsible for driving HP’s personal systems business covering products, solutions and marketing strategy, across the South Pacific region – Australia and New Zealand. This involves sales and marketing across the entire PSG portfolio including commercial and consumer notebooks and desktops, monitors, workstations, thin clients and handhelds.
Cox is tasked with accelerating growth and profitability across the PSG business, working closely with internal teams and channel partners. She was unavailable to comment on her position at time of press, but in a prepared statement, pointed to the PSG team’s strong relationships with channel partners.
Prior to taking up the PSG job, Janice was the volume sales director for HP Australia and looked after sales and marketing programs and growing HP’s overall customer base. She has held several leadership positions with HP including channel and PSG sales director. Initially joining Digital Equipment Corporation in 1992, Cox then worked for Compaq prior to the merger with HP in sales and channel positions.
