Hewlett-Packard has come up with a shortlist of three candidates for the job of CEO, sources close to the company have claimed. The list comprises one internal candidate, HP long-timer Ann Livermore, and two others from outside the company. The sources, cited by Reuters, refused to identify the other two candidates, suggesting the leak was made to promote Livermore's chances of getting the job or to signal she effectively already has it. She is currently president of HP's enterprise computing division, and has been with the company for 17 years. And, in a male-dominated industry, it would be a major statement of change on HP's part to name a woman as CEO. About time, too, really. Reuters' sources also said the appointment could be announced any day, but that the naming will happen by early July at the latest. ®
