Chinese devices maker Lenovo on Friday announced structural and leadership changes, effective on April 1.
The company said the PC Group (PCG) will undertake a significant realignment, becoming Lenovo’s PC & Smart Device Business Group.
This group will be responsible for delivering PCs, detatchables, tablets, phablets, gaming and smart home products across Windows, Chrome and Android based products.
Lenovo expects the change will fuel its ability to continue to grow share in the consolidating PC market, while focusing on the rapidly emerging smart device market.
The PC & Smart Device Business Group will be led by Gianfranco Lanci, group president and COO of Lenovo. Lenovo’s geographic sales and global operations organizations will continue to report to Lanci.
Further, Lenovo’s Enterprise Business Group will become the Data Center Group (DCG). Gerry Smith is the president of the new DCG.
Peter Hortensius, currently Lenovo Group’s CTO, will join DCG as both CTO and head of strategy. Qingtong Zhou will join DCG as CFO, while remaining Lenovo’s global CIO.
Xudong Chen and Aymar de Lencquesaing become co-presidents of Lenovo’s Mobile Business Group, which has a stronghold in China. They will be reporting to Yuanqing Yang.
Lenovo believes that cloud is critical to the future. On that note, Lenovo formed a new group, the Lenovo Capital and Incubator Group. Former ECS head George will lead this group.
