HP Middle East’s SMB Segment Manager, Hamid Hassan, has left the vendor giant after five years of service. Hassan led the firm’s SMB (small and medium sized business) division for the last 18 months. Hassan’s departure coincides with HP Middle East’s recent restructuring, which was finalised and announced last month. These changes saw the firm dissolve its Customer Solutions Group (CSG), within which Hassan had headed up the firm’s SMB team. HP has now integrated CSG’s staff into each of its remaining three business units: IPG, PSG and TSG. This in turn means that each business will address the SMB market as an individual entity. Hamid Hassan was unavailable for official comment, however HP PSG’s Hanan Kamal, who now leads the group’s marketing and SMB operation, told ITP.net, “Because the SMB market is so huge, it’s very hard for one business unit to focus on this alone.” With respect to Hassan, Kamal confirmed that he was offered a new position within HP but chose not to take it. She then further detailed HP’s internal changes: “Through our restructure, CSG’s marketing team went to HP PSG. Other staff from CSG, such as sales personnel, now work in each of our three remaining business groups.”
