HP announced an organizational realignment, which will merge its Imaging and Printing Group (IPG) and its Personal Systems Group (PSG) into one group deemed the Printing and Personal Systems Group. Todd Bradley, who has served as the executive vice president of PSG since 2005, will lead the combined entity. Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president of IPG, is retiring after a highly accomplished 31-year career at HP. Under Joshi’s leadership, IPG has grown revenue from $19 billion to $26 billion and doubled its operating profit to approximately $4 billion. During HP’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which was held March 21, the decision to combine the entities was discussed, with Meg Whitman, HP’s president and chief executive officer, commenting that the merger of IPG and PSG will make HP a “more powerful force.” However, Joshi’s retirement was not acknowledged.
