HP names more names

Two months after the official merger with Compaq the managerial structure at HP NZ is in place, though the company says it hasn't yet made any announcements to staff about likely job cuts.

Two months after the official merger with Compaq the managerial structure at HP NZ is in place, though the company says it hasn’t yet made any announcements to staff about likely job cuts.

HP NZ has named several layers of managers that will head its four divisions: enterprise systems, personal systems, services and print and imaging.

On May 7 the companies officially came together, but were already well into the massive task of sorting the duplicated from the complementary, in terms of products, services, infrastructure and the roles of employees. Locally the newly merged company had about 600 staff and annual revenues of $500 million.

As for staff cuts, the company has floated targets of about 10% or around 15,000 people worldwide, though Australasian boss Paul Brandling has suggested job losses in the region could be as high as 15%. Up to 20 jobs went at the 80-staff CSC New Zealand following its takeover late last year by HP. The remainder have merged with HP’s 50-strong services division.

There has been speculation that the company will move out of HP’s Ports of Auckland building. Compaq occupied a building in Auckland’s Viaduct Basin.
