HP has promoted Tony Bill to a regional role across its commercial volume business
HP’s Personal Systems Group (PSG) vice-president, Tony Bill, has been promoted to a regional role across its commercial volume business.
As vice-president of commercial volume sales (CVS) for HP Asia-Pacific and Japan, Bill will drive strategic and programmatic sales execution to ensure PSG growth, the vendor said in a statement. He will also work on identifying waves of market opportunity.
Bill replaces Tian Chong Ng, who has also been promoted internally, and will report to regional PSG senior vice-president, See Chin Teik.
“I have been fortunate to be part of the PSG organisation in South Pacific for so long and am proud of all the things we have achieved. Our sustained market leadership and continued growth is a testament to the focus and capabilities of our people and partners,” Bill said in the statement.
Tony joined Compaq in June 1994 as product marketing manager and took hold of the PSG reins six years ago. He will remain as acting vice-president and general manager for PSG South Pacific until a replacement is found, HP stated.
During Bill’s tenure the vendor said its South Pacific business experienced continuous market share leadership in the local market for more than 57 consecutive quarters, according to IDC figures.
Bill’s departure from the local PSG team comes three months after Asia-Pacific PSG chief, Adrian Koch, announced his retirement.
