Nearly three decades after joining HP, Andy Isherwood has been named as the top EMEA executive for Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Isherwood (pictured) was previously managing director for the UK but has been elevated into the same role at an EMEA level following a global sales reshuffle at the enterprise IT vendor.
The post was previously held by Peter Ryan, who was recently appointed by HPE CEO Meg Whitman to lead a new single global sales organisation within HPE's Enterprise Group.
Isherwood joined HP as a graduate trainee in 1988 and has held roles in the UK, Europe and throughout the world across technology areas including infrastructure, software and services.
Isherwood's formal job title now is leader of Enterprise Group and managing director EMEA, Ryan confirmed in a blog post today.
His appointment comes after HPE confirmed it will spin off its services business. The recently decoupled vendor, which specialises in servers, storage and networking kit, is also rumoured to be in talks to sell off certain software assets, according to a report.
"I have no doubt that the EMEA Enterprise Group is in good hands and will benefit from Andy's leadership," Ryan said.
As part of his role, Isherwood will also be leader of HPE's Enterprise Group in EMEA. Sales teams were aligned into a single global sales organisation within its Enterprise Group two weeks ago, which Ryan was appointed to lead.
