Meet the New HP Boss
HP has trouble hanging onto top bosses: Carly Fiorina was let go, only to chop off her hair and run for office, and Mark Hurd resigned after charges of sexual harassment -- although both parties claim there was nothing going on. Weird.
Redmond magazine Executive Editor Lee Pender has a solution: HP should hire him! Lee has no business degree or P&L experience. But he has two things going for him: His last name isn't Hurd or Fiorina.
While, admittedly, incompetent (at least as HP CEO), Lee has made a number of campaign promises: He won't fudge expense reports (I approve his and, so far, they are clean) and promises no harassment of any kind (Lee is, reportedly, happily married).
The whole post is hysterical, and I suggest you read it here.
