Internet Security Threat Report 2014

An internal Compaq memo from Ben Rosen and senior executives to staff has outlined changes happening at the company. It is reproduced in full, below From: Office of the CEO Sent: Thursday, April 29, 1999 1:42 PM Subject: Organizational Change To: Compaq Team Two weeks into our tenure in the Office of the Chief Executive we are focused intently on making the changes necessary to accelerate the speed of decision making, beginning in the most logical place - the top of our organizational structure. As an initial step, we have determined that our major geographic regions and Corporate Marketing will report directly to the Office of the Chief Executive, eliminating the need for a separate Worldwide Sales and Marketing Organization. This change will accelerate our decision making and bring us even closer to our customers. Effective immediately: * Andreas Barth, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Europe, Middle East and Africa, will report directly to the Office of the Chief Executive; * Peter Blackmore is promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager of North America and will report directly to the Office of the Chief Executive; * Enrico Pesatori will assume the newly created position of Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Regions reporting directly to the Office of the Chief Executive. Global Regions will comprise Asia Pacific, Greater China, Japan and Latin America. The following general managers will report to Enrico: Paul Chan, Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific Philip Yu, Vice President and General Manager, Greater China Hajime Takayanagi, Vice President and General Manager, Japan Enrique Ospina, Vice President and General Manager, Latin America. Enrico will continue to act as Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing until a replacement is named. Graeme Woodley, Vice President of Global Accounts, will join the Corporate Marketing team. Michael Heil has decided to accept an opportunity to become CEO of a start-up company. Mike contributed greatly to the success of Compaq over his four years with the Company. He was a driving force behind Compaq's move into the consumer segment and helped build the Consumer Group into a vital element of our business. We thank him for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors. We know you will join us in congratulating Andreas, Peter, and Enrico in their new roles and in supporting this new organizational structure. Ben Frank Ted
