Hewlett-Packard has selected Mark Hurd, NCR chief executive, as its next CEO, according to a source close to the board.

Hurd's appointment comes less than two months after HP ousted former chief executive Carly Fiorina.

Hurd will serve as president and chief executive, with Patricia Dunn retaining the chairwoman title, the source said. Hurd is expected to begin his new duties early next month.

"He has done an astonishing job at NCR and had inherited similar problems" to those at HP, the source said. "NCR sells into retail and enterprise markets, and has the same complexities."
