Looks like Leo will show at HP APC

Leo Apotheker, who proved somewhat, um, elusive, during the first weeks of his stint as Hewlett-Packard CEO, will speak at HP’s Americas Partner Conference (APC)  in late April. This was no gimme. There was considerable speculation whether he’d be there. But the APC invites are out and Leo will speak March 28 opening day, along with HP channel chief Stephen DiFranco.

Apotheker was named HP’s CEO in October after HP went through a very public and very messy divorce from former star CEO Mark Hurd. Then,  Hurd surfaced as co-president of Oracle, an erstwhile HP partner and HP hired Apotheker, a former CEO of SAP.  SAP, which leads the ERP market, is the arch nemesis of Oracle and all sorts of soap opera-level skullduggery ensued, most revolving around public threats by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison subpoena Apotheker in a lawsuit Oracle lodged against SAP.

Leo, however, was nowhere to be found. And HP partners worried about the silence from HP’s new top dog. Mark Hurd, for all his faults, had been very hands-on with HP partners. Now, Apotheker can try to assuage any doubts partners might have about the channel-friendliness of his HP.
