I am pleased to announce that Rashmi Kumar has been officially appointed as HPE’s Chief Information Officer (CIO). Serving in this role on an interim basis since January, Rashmi has been focused on building the necessary capabilities to position the Global IT organization for the future. In just three months, Rashmi has strengthened the bench of her leadership team, re-engineered the organization to align with an operating model that will deliver optimum performance, and begun implementing a winning strategy to ensure best-in-class support and improved partnership with the business.
Rashmi brings more than 25 years of experience with areas of focus that include Digital Transformation, AI/ML, Data & Analytics, strategic planning, Cyber Security & Compliance, Enterprise Architecture, and large scale business process transformations. Prior to joining HPE in 2018, Rashmi served as CIO and CTO for many Fortune 50 companies like, McKesson, Southern California Edison, Toyota, HPE, and Tata Steel.
This is a tremendously exciting move for Rashmi, and is a testament of her leadership and contributions to the Global IT organization and HPE.
In addition to building world-class IT capabilities, Rashmi is passionate about promoting diversity and equity in the workplace, and is the executive sponsor for several HPE Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). She also sits on the company’s Inclusion and Diversity Steering Committee.
