HP names chief sales officer

Tech veteran Don Grantham comes from Sun Microsystems and replaces Andy Mattes, who now heads up the company's outsourcing services business.

Hewlett-Packard said Tuesday that it has chosen a new chief sales officer.

Don Grantham has been chosen to fill the role immediately, and will report to HP's executive vice president of the Technology Solutions Group, Ann Livermore. Enterprise accounts, public sector customers, as well as communications, media and entertainment, financial services, and manufacturing and distribution sales will fall under his purview.

Grantham is a tech industry veteran. He was previously the executive vice president for global sales and service at Sun Microsystems, and before that, held various sales positions at IBM.

He will replace Andy Mattes, who was moved on to become HP's senior vice president and general manager of its outsourcing services business.
