HP has appointed former Bloomberg journalist Connie Guglielmo as its new vice president of corporate communications, effective September 1.
Reporting to CMO Michael Mendenhall, Guglielmo will oversee all aspects of internal and external corporate communications, including global media and analyst relations, global internal communications and employee initiatives, global executive communications, and strategic messaging.
Guglielmo's most recent journalistic role was at Bloomberg News, where she was a reporter/enterprise writer for the US technology practice and managed teams of collaborators located around the world for the past seven years. Prior to Bloomberg, she was Silicon Valley bureau chief/West Coast news editor at Interactive Week and executive news editor at MacWEEK.
David Shane, HP's former VP of global corporate communications, left to start his own comms advisory firm earlier this month. The technology company's CEO Mark Hurd resigned from his post on August 6 amid allegations of possible sexual harassment and falsified expenses.
