Rutherford leaves HP ranks

JENNIFER Rutherford is to remain in the IT industry, but is not yet revealing where her next job will be.

The former general manager of Hewlett-Packard New Zealand’s imaging and print group surprised many in the industry when she left the company three weeks ago.

Since then speculation over where Rutherford would resurface was fuelled by her sudden disappearance from view.

“I have been on a well-deserved holiday with my children for the last two weeks,” Rutherford told Reseller News on Monday, adding it will be at least another four weeks before she can talk about her next role. “It will make sense when I can talk more about it.”

In the meantime, Rutherford plans to enjoy a break from working and will travel to Australia.

“It is good to take some time off — I recommend it to anybody.”

Rutherford joined HP following the merger with Compaq and she led the imaging and print team for four years.

She has been replaced by Andrew Seerden, who also manages consumer sales and marketing and now joins HP New Zealand’s senior leadership team.

In other changes to its management team, HP has made four other appointments which the vendor says reflect its recent restructure to become a more customer-facing organisation. Jillian Dimock is national public sector manager; Jeff Healey is now enterprise and corporate marketing manager; Mike Hill is national enterprise account manager; and Melissa Donaghey is human resources manager.

HP country manager Keith Watson says the appointments complement the core competencies already present in the senior leadership team.
