Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman is stepping down from HP’s board, the company announced on Wednesday.
Whitman’s seat on the board of directors will be replaced by Levi Strauss & Co. President and CEO Chip Bergh.
Whitman will remain the CEO of HPE, which split off from HP Inc. in 2015.
“HP has now been a standalone company for almost two years and I’m proud to have helped get the company off to a great start,” Whitman said in a company release. “The HP board is among the most diverse in our industry, and the company has established a proven track record of successfully delivering on its commitments. I’m very confident in Dion’s continued vision and leadership as well as Chip’s ability to help guide the organisation.”
