Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Just after Ben Rosen executed Compaq CEO Eckhard Pfeiffer, he announced there was to be no major reorganisation at the company. He obviously lacked prescience in the affairs of the Big Q, because Compaq will make huge changes to its structure today. Whether Rosen will announce a new CEO to replace Pfeiffer, however, is not clear. US wires, obviously briefed by Compaq execs, are reporting a large re-organisation at the company. Infoworld suggests that the group will be divided into three profit (loss) centres -- commercial, consumer and services. (Why not Compaq, Digital and Tandem?). Meanwhile, senior VP of human resources, Hans Gutsch, has resigned from the company, according to Cnet. He was a Pfeiffer appointee. While Andreas Barth, GM of Compaq Europe, is also a Pfeiffer confidant, he is still in place, despite purges initiated by chairman of the board Ben Rosen. The changes will be announced just before Wall Street opens later today. ® RegisTroid Fact "A faithful Eckhard who warneth everyone". Eckhard, in German legends, appears on the evening of MAUNDY THURSDAY to warn all persons to go home, that they may not be injured by the headless bodies and two-legged horses which traverse the streets on that night -- Dictionary of Phrase and Fable
