HP promotes Harvey Anderson to its next chief legal officer
HP announced that Kim Rivera, President of Strategy & Business Management and Chief Legal Officer, has made the personal decision to depart HP following a successful five-year tenure with the company. To ensure a seamless transition, Rivera will remain a special advisor to CEO Enrique Lores and the company through the end of 2021. The Board has appointed Harvey Anderson, HP’s General Counsel, as Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary. Anderson will join the company’s executive leadership team.
“Kim has been integral to HP’s success since our early days as a standalone company in 2015. Her business acumen, legal prowess and purpose-driven leadership have made a huge impact and built a deep bench of leaders across her teams. We will benefit from her contributions for many years to come,” said Lores. He added, “I am delighted to welcome Harvey to the HP executive leadership team. His wise counsel, sound judgment and strategic acuity will continue to serve us well as we deliver on our strategic priorities.”
Anderson joined HP in 2017 as deputy general counsel for the company’s Personal Systems and 3D Printing business units. He has more than 25 years of experience in public policy, regulatory compliance, corporate and commercial transactions, and IP litigation. Prior to joining HP, he served as chief legal officer at AVG Technologies, a leading provider of software security solutions. He has also held senior legal roles at Mozilla Corporation, Seven Networks, and Netscape/AOL. Anderson earned his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law and his undergraduate degree in engineering from Marquette University.
