George Hope announces Simon Ewington’s appointment to Vice President, Worldwide Distribution
I am very pleased to announce that Simon Ewington will serve as the new Vice President of Worldwide Distribution here at HPE.
As Simon takes over my previous role, I will work closely with him to empower distributors to further monetize and embrace as-a-service selling strategies, while helping our shared channel partners deliver superior business outcomes to customers. His prior experience at HPE enabling the channel transformation from a transactional to an outcome-focused business and his track record of driving consistent growth make him a natural leader for our worldwide distribution business.
Simon joined Hewlett-Packard almost thirty years ago, in 1993, and has since held numerous international management positions, including Distribution and Channel Sales Leader EMEA between 2014 and 2017. Most recently, he led the Graphics Solutions Business at HP Inc, managing a significant volume of channel-led business.
Simon brings deep channel experience and a partner-first approach to this new role. He is a results-oriented leader with a proven expertise in change management across volume and value categories. He’s consistently demonstrated his ability to drive high-performing teams -- both direct and virtual -- across international borders, and successfully nurture key customer relationships.
As more than 80 percent of our indirect business goes through distribution, I’m confident in Simon’s ability to help drive long-term, sustainable, and profitable growth with partners -- executing on HPE’s edge-to-cloud platform-as-a-service vision.
Simon lives in Geneva, Switzerland with his wife and teenage daughters, and enjoys staying active through football, golf, and running.
