HP hands PPS UK role to Brasher

With Paul Hunter becoming the CEO's chief of staff HP has appointed his replacement to head the PPS UK business

Hewlett-Packard has changed the leadership of its UK Printing and Personal Systems (PPS) business as it shuffles its management team around following some internal changes.

HP veteran George Brasher, who has clocked up 24 years with the vendor, will step into the role of vice president and general manager PPS UK and Ireland, from the start of next month.

He replaces Paul Hunter, who has been chosen to be the Chief of Staff to CEO Meg Whitman, and has been highlighted as an illustration of the commitment the vendor has to promoting from within.

Hunter had been running the PPS business for the last couple of years and will head to the US to take up his position working closely with the CEO.

In his time at HP Brasher has worked at the laser printer business, the printer business in the US and in various sales and marketing roles across EMEA and AMS.

Brasher starts his role on 1 July and will be reporting into Herbert Kock, senior vice president PPS & managing director HP EMEA.
