I'm not sure what to think of former HP CEO Mark Hurd. During the scandal of 2006 where HP spied on reporters and even its own board members, Chairwoman Barbara Dunn took the fall. Hurd sidestepped the whole situation and came up unscathed. My view was that, as CEO, he either knew or probably should have known what the board was up to -- especially after it hired a team of nine outside investigators to look into the matter.
But those that follow HP have praised Hurd's leadership and results. Now they must be a bit bummed that the man they admired resigned in the wake of a rather nasty scandal.
Apparently, Hurd steered company money towards an acquaintance's way -- which was looked at as inappropriate in the eyes of HP.
Was Hurd a good or bad thing for HP? You tell me at [email protected]
