Joe McNally, Compaq UK vice president and managing director, has shuffled his Cabinet of senior management in the UK and Ireland. The rejig resulted in three business groups being created – the Enterprise Solutions and Services Group, Commercial Personal Computing Group and Consumer Group. These will be led by Gareth Cadwallader, David Wright and Jude Meadows respectfully. A new eCommerce division has also been created, and this will be headed up by William Knocker. Knocker will be responsible for the vendor's entire ecommerce activity. The rest of the top staff line-up is as follows: Mark Norton – group sales director Nick Offin – partner sales director Hamish Haynes – marketing communications director David Toso – professional services director Craig McCoy – human resources director Paul Smolinski – finance and administration director Tom Keating – director, Compaq Ireland McNally said Compaq was aggressively trying to claw back some of the company’s growth and financial performance. "Customers can expect to see a more focused approach in three specific market segments – enterprise solutions, consumer and commercial PCs. "The creation of the new eCommerce division reaffirms Compaq's vision to become the Internet leader of tomorrow," said McNally. ®
