Compaq announced last week its new senior management team for Europe, and completed its reorganisation into three global business groups.
The Enterprise Solutions and Services Group has been created from the integration of the Enterprise Computing Group and Compaq Services. This unit, headed up in Europe by Gerard Van de Aast, is responsible for Compaq's NonStop eBusiness products.
"This reorganisation is not before time," commented a senior Compaq executive who would not be named. "The three services organisations (which previously existed within Compaq) have been trampling on each other's toes to get into contracts for far too long."
The new Personal Computer Product and E-Commerce Group chief is Kasper Rorsted, while the Consumer Group will continue to be led by Toon Bouten.
Veteran UK managing director Joe McNally is to stay on.
Job losses are expected as a result of the restructuring. Van de Aast said he could not reveal specifics, but added: "It is reasonable to assume we will be a smaller organisation."
