HP Forms New Cloud Unit

HP has hired Margaret Dawson out of Symform to be VP of product marketing and cloud evangelist for HP Cloud Services

HP has hired Margaret Dawson out of Symform to be VP of product marketing and cloud evangelist for HP Cloud Services, a new start-up unit inside HP.

She claims that “much of the negative hype reported around HP does not match reality. HP has a strong foundation to compete and win in the cloud and is building out the right leadership team, ecosystem, cloud platform and solutions to escalate that process.”

It’s unclear how many people will believe her.

She says she will spit her time between Seattle and Silicon Valley.

Symform’s marketing team will now report to Bob DeSantis and Mason White, its director of product marketing, will be handling much of the marketing leadership responsibilities.
