    Howie Elias wants to rest his nose

    Dow Jones Business News
    H-P's Elias Resigns as Head of Enterprise Systems Group
    Monday September 15, 3:18 pm ET
    By Gary McWilliams


    HOUSTON -- The executive overseeing Hewlett-Packard Co.'s big-computer and storage-business operations resigned, the latest in a series of recent executive departures from the unit.
    Howard Elias, H-P's senior vice president of business operations and management for its Enterprise Systems Group, left to "pursue other opportunities," a company spokesman said. Mr. Elias told The Wall Street Journal he left voluntarily to consider jobs elsewhere.

    "I wanted to go off and do some different things in my career," he said.

    His departure comes on the heels of a series of executive departures at the Palo Alto, Calif., printer and computer maker's large computer and storage unit. The H-P spokesman said the company doesn't plan to replace Mr. Elias, and is reassigning his planning and strategy duties among existing managers.

    Last month, H-P reported that unit's fiscal third-quarter operating loss widened to $70 million from $7 million the prior quarter on a 4% revenue decline. The loss was a disappointment given the big-computer and storage unit was a key part of H-P's motivation in acquiring Computer Computer Corp. last year.

    Mr. Elias, who was based in Houston, had been with H-P and Compaq for nine years. Prior to the May reorganization, he had been general manager of H-P's storage group. At Compaq, he also was senior vice president and general manager of its big-computer unit.

    Separately, Hugh Jenkins, H-P's vice president of marketing for Intel-based servers, also resigned, the company confirmed. The H-P spokesman said Mr. Jenkins also resigned to pursue other opportunities, and a replacement has not yet been named. Mr. Jenkins couldn't be reached for comment.

    Several former Compaq executives have left H-P's big-computer unit in the last two months. Roger Archibald, former vice president of network attached storage, resigned in August. Mark Sorenson, an H-P vice president of storage software, left in July to join storage giant EMC Corp. (NYSE:EMC - News) .

    • I do not make fun of your chart. I realize you live by the sanctity of the "Chart". That you will not indulge in any non "Chart" behaviour, and I am grateful for that. I understand that the "Chart" is life itself and any time we abuse the "Chart" we abuse ourselves. Long live the "Chart"

    • Confusion,

      While Mr. Elias might have been a deadwood, his ass should have been thrown off the Six Flags AstroWorld. Instead Carl touted the management team as part of her new zipper.
