Hewlett-Packard accounting chief resigns

NEW YORK (AP) -- Hewlett-Packard's accounting chief is stepping down on Nov. 1 after 25 years with the computer maker.

The company said in a regulatory filing that Marc Levine, senior vice president, controller and principal accounting officer, resigned on Sept. 18. He joined the Palo Alto, Calif., company in 1988.

He was named to his current post in March 2012, just months after HP bought Autonomy for $9.7 billion. In November of 2012, Hewlett-Packard Co. took an $8.8 billion writedown saying it was the victim of a multibillion dollar fraud at the hands of the British company. Autonomy's former CEO said HP's allegations were false.
