Lenovo has tapped a company veteran to succeed Jay Parker as senior vice president of Lenovo’s enterprise business group – a move that triggered new positions for two other senior executives.
Tom Shell, who joined Lenovo in 2006, was named to succeed Parker. He previously was in charge of the PC business group at Lenovo, a Chinese company that also has a headquarters in Morrisville.
Parker recently resigned from Lenovo to take a senior position at Dell, where he had worked for more than a decade before joining Lenovo in 2007. His new role at Dell is vice president and general manager of North America enterprise solution sales – which includes servers, data storage and networking software.
In its announcement, Lenovo lauded Shell for “a strong track record of attaining pofitable growth and industry leadership across product lines.”
Additional information about Shell wasn’t immediately available. Like Parker, he is based in the Triangle.
Lenovo also announced that Johnson Jia was named senior vice president of the PC business group. He previously led PC and enterprise global operations.
In addition, Guan Wei, was named vice president of PC and enterprise global operations. He prevously was CEO of Lenovo’s manufacturing joint venture with Compal Electronics.
