HP adds two new faces to its board

The world's biggest PC maker names a venture capitalist and co-creator of CurrentTV to its board of directors.

Hewlett-Packard filled out its boardroom with two new members.

Joel Hyatt, founder of Current Media, and John Joyce, a manging director of Silver Lake Partners private equity firm, will become directors of of the world's largest PC maker, according to a Friday SEC filing.

Hyatt co-founded Current Media, which produces Current TV, with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. He is also the founder and former chief executive of Hyatt Legal Plans. Joyce was previously at IBM, where over the course of two decades he held the positions of senior vice president of its Global Services division, chief financial officer of IBM, and president of IBM Asia Pacific.

The two appointments bring the number of directors to 10, after three seats on the board were vacated during last year's pretexting scandal.
