Tech company HP fired three CEOs in the span of six years. The company forced Carly Fiorina to resign in 2005. In 2010, Mark Hurd resigned after being accused of sexual harassment by a contractor.
Leo Apotheker had the title of CEO for less than one year, ousted in Sept. 2011. During his leadership, the company's stock fell as Apotheker floundered between leading the company as a software or hardware firm.
HP brought in former eBay CEO Meg Whitman as its chief executive officer. The company's stock has begun to recover, trading around $22.14 on Tuesday.
Where are they now?
Carly Fiorina is also a member of several boards, including the board of trustees for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of her alma maters. In 2007, she published a memoir. She made a run for Barbara Boxer's California Senate seat, but was defeated by the Democratic incumbent in Nov. 2010. According to her website, she lives in Va. with her husband.
In Sept. 2010, Hurd became president of Oracle Corp. and a member of Oracle's board of directors.
After HP, Apotheker reportedly returned to Paris. He sits on a number of boards. In March, he made brief headlines for talking to private-equity firms in Silicon Valley and in Dec. 2012, he was appointed chairman of the board of Danish tech firm, KMD.
