Hewlett Packard (HP) has announced the 150 top posts at the newly merged company, assuming that the deal with Compaq is not derailed.
As expected, current chief executive Carly Fiorina will remain in that position, with Compaq boss Michael Capellas becoming president.
Other appointments hint heavily at the products that will be continued under the banner of the new company, and those that will go.
Significantly, the new heads of the enterprise solutions group, the Intel-based server division, the notebook group and the network storage solutions group will all be from Compaq, as will the head of the business PC group.
HP executives will head up personal systems groups and consumer PCs, which were successful markets for the company. It is expected that many familiar brands will remain.
The value of the deal has fallen from its original share evaluation of $25bn to just over $19bn.
