"Ron is a seasoned CIO with a strong track record of delivering world-class IT solutions for a rapidly growing business," said Mott. "His broad industry experience, passion for delivering IT value, and commitment to people make him an ideal leader for our TSG business."

HP's global IT leadership team serving under Mott now includes:
