5 Companies That Came To Win


Hewlett-Packard has been going through some turbulent times in recent years and some observers have pointed fingers at the company's board of directors as a source of the company's problems.

So it's welcome news this week that the company is adding three high-profile members to the board, including Raymond Ozzie, one of the industry's best-known technologists. Ozzie led the development of the ground-breaking Lotus Notes application, later served as Microsoft's chief software architect and is currently managing the startup Talko.

Also joining the board are Robert Bennett, former president and CEO of Liberty Mutual, and James Skinner, former CEO of McDonald's -- both of whom bring significant business experience to HP.
