Ink cartridges maker Hewlett-Packard has named Bill Wohl as its senior vice-president and chief communications officer.

Mr Wohl joins the toner cartridges maker with more than 25 years' experience in public relations, working as a senior executive for 12 years at business management firm SAP AG, where he worked on mergers and acquisitions and oversaw new product launches.

He was also volunteer fire-fighter in his spare time for 25 years.

The new role has been newly created by HP, and will see Mr Wohl manage and coordinate communications across the company.

"Bill is a consummate professional who will lead the effort to articulate my vision and broader strategy for HP," said Leo Apotheker, HP president and chief executive.

"He will help drive our entire business forward by conveying the value and the richness of HP, and the shared vision for our products and services."

HP possesses the largest worldwide market share for printers, with 44 per cent, according to research firm IDC.
