A director since 2011, Livermore is an HP veteran, having been at the company in various positions since 1982. She stepped down from running HP's Enterprise Business unit earlier this year. Livermore has been considered a top candidate for the chief executive role on three separate occasions, losing out to Carly Fiorina, Mark Hurd, and Apotheker.
A director since 2011, Whitman is the former CEO of eBay, which she headed for 10 years. She made an unsuccessful run for California governor in 2010. Whitman has been named HP’s new CEO, replacing Leo Apotheker.
A director since 2011, Senequier is chairman and CEO of AXA Private Equity, which she founded. She was part of the wave of new directors when the HP board underwent a makeover.
A director since 2011, Reiner is a special adviser at private equity firm General Atlantic and was previously CIO at General Electric. He was among the handful of newcomers to the HP board when it got a bit of a makeover earlier this year.
A director since 2011, Russo was CEO at Alcatel-Lucent until 2008. She was also one of the newcomers who joined the HP board along with Meg Whitman earlier this year.
A director since 2011, Banerji is CEO of consulting firm Booz & Company. Banerji joined the board in January when HP replaced four directors and added another seat, just months after the Mark Hurd scandal. The timing of the replacements seemed tied to an investigation HP was set to start into the circumstances surrounding former CEO Hurd's resignation from the company.
A director since 2010, Apotheker was named chief executive of HP last fall. He came to the company after heading up German software company SAP, where he resigned after the board there declined to extend his contract following somewhat disappointing sales and earnings. He is being replaced as CEO by Meg Whitman and also is resigning from the board.
A director since 2010, Lane is executive chairman of the board. He is a managing partner at private equity firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and was previously president and COO of Oracle. In Reuters interview in July, Lane said he saw a turnaround at HP as a long-term project and said Apotheker was paying for past mistakes.
A director since 2009, Andreessen is the co-founder of VC firm Andreessen Horowitz and co-founder and chairman of online platform Ning. He also co-founded software company Opsware, which HP bought for $1.6 billion in 2007, and Netscape Communications. Andreessen also sits on the board of eBay, where Meg Whitman was chief executive until 2008.
A director since 2009, Gupta is chairman of chemical company Avantor Performance Materials and a senior adviser to private equity firm New Mountain Capital. He also serves on the board of electronics maker Tyco International and The Vanguard Group.
A director since 2006, HP designated then-new board member Thompson, who was the CEO of Wachovia, as the independent director with responsibility for reviewing and reporting on HP's compliance with legal and ethical requirements related to investigations. The move came as HP settled with California over the infamous spy scandal.
A director since 2006, Baldauf was formerly the head of Nokia Networks. In 1998, Fortune named her the most influential female executive of the year. She also sits on the board of Daimler and F-Secure, among other companies.
A director since 2005, Hammergren is chairman and CEO of health care services and IT company McKesson. Following the Mark Hurd scandal, Hammergren was among the handful of directors on the search committee to select a new CEO.
A director since 2002, Babbio is a senior adviser at private equity firm Warburg Pincus. He was president of Verizon Communications until he retired in 2007.
