HP has announced an overhaul to its board of directors which will bring five new members onboard.
Headlining the list of new appointments is former eBay chief executive Meg Whitman, who recently made an unsuccessful run for the California governor's office which reportedly cost her $160m (£100m).
Other new board members include former Alacatel-Lucent chief executive Dominique Senequier, and former General Electric chief information officer Gery Reiner.
Current HP board members Joel Hyatt, John Joyce, Bob Ryan and Lucille Salhany will not be seeking re-election.
"The addition of these new directors will further diversify the outstanding talents and wide-ranging experience that our directors already bring to HP," said non-executive board chairman Raymond Lane.
"Each is a widely respected and deeply experienced business leader, and together they will provide our board and management team with new insight and perspectives relating to HP's business and the rapidly changing technology industry."
The news also follows new reports on Hurd's dismissal. A recent court filing indicates that HP is launching another probe into the severance payment agreed with Hurd.
