HP today announced that it has replaced CEO Leo Apotheker with former eBay CEO Meg Whitman. Apotheker is vacating his role as president, CEO, and director effective immediately. Apotheker served as HP's CEO for just 11 months. Under his leadership, HP decided to kill off its webOS smartphone and tablet business. In a statement, HP said, "We are at a critical moment and we need renewed leadership to successfully implement our strategy and take advantage of the market opportunities ahead. Meg is a technology visionary with a proven track record of execution. She is a strong communicator who is customer focused with deep leadership capabilities. Furthermore, as a member of HP’s board of directors for the past eight months, Meg has a solid understanding of our products and markets."
