Acer sees HP changes as chance to grab customers

Sep 27, 2011 2:58:54 PM - www.ft.lk

FRANKFURT (Reuters): World No. 2 computer vendor Acer believes the recent top management change at rival Hewlett-Packard is a huge opportunity for the former to win over some customers, Acer Europe head Walter Deppeler told a German daily.

Hewlett-Packard Co last week named former eBay Inc Chief Executive Meg Whitman its president and CEO, replacing Leo Apotheker in a bid to restore investor confidence in the iconic Silicon Valley company.
“That is a major chance for us because big customers and resellers are uncertain. They are asking themselves: what’s next, who can I work with?” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung quoted Walter Deppeler as saying in a prerelease of its Tuesday edition. “We want to use this as an opportunity for us,” he added.
