Apple Hires Former HP Executive to Run Corporate Sales

Posted by · 7210 views · Translate
Apple has reportedly hired John Solomon, a former senior Vice President of HP’s printing and personal systems group. According to several sources, Solomon will work to increase sales to large corporations and government agencies.

Other sources say Solomon may be involved in international efforts to sell the Apple Watch, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. An HP spokeswoman confirmed that Solomon left the company and an Apple Spokesman confirmed that Solomon had joined the company, but declined to comment on his title.

If tapped to take over enterprise efforts, Solomon would constitute a significant hire for a company that hasn’t traditionally made a strong effort in corporate sales. In the past, Apple hasn’t maintained its own direct sales force targeting corporate customers, opting instead to rely on third-party resellers. That changed late last year when it started to staff up for enterprise sales.

Solomon originally joined HP in 1992 after finishing his MBA from the University of Washington's Foster School of Business.
