Bloomberg reports the HP Board is considering replacing CEO Leo Apotheker after less then a year tenure… poor Leo, after this and his previous gig as SAP CEO where he lasted 10 months, he might as well specialize on 10-month “turnaround” gigs.
But it would be naive to think Leo could have initiated changes of this magnitude without the Board. Perhaps the Board should be fired as a whole. Oh, well, I think the above image says it all. 🙂
