Hewlett-Packard Co. Chairman-CEO Mark Hurd has joined News Corp.’s board of directors, and former Secretary of Education Rod Paige has resigned.
Mr. Paige, who was part of the Bush administration, will continue as a consultant on educational issues for News Corp., which News Corp. Chairman-CEO Rupert Murdoch, in Tuesday’s announcement of the board moves, said “delighted” him.
“I look forward to continuing to benefit from his wisdom and experience,” Mr. Murdoch said of the ongoing relationship with Mr. Paige, who had been on the board since 2006.
Mr. Murdoch said Mr. Hurd “has had great success in sharpening HP’s strategic focus, resulting in increased growth and profitability for what is one of the world’s leading technology companies. As we continue to position our company for the digital age, Mark’s vast operational experience in the technology sector will be a valuable asset to the News Corp. board, and we welcome him to our ranks.”
“I look forward to serving on News Corp.’s board and contributing to its continued remarkable success,” said Mr. Hurd, who has been HP’s president-CEO and a member of its board of directors since April 2005; he became chairman of the board in September 2006. Before that he had spent 25 years at NCR Corp.
