Fiorina Ousted

HP’s hard-charging CEO and chairman is out. Carly Fiorina, one of the highest ranking female executives in the world was dismissed today by HP’s board of directors.

According to an AP report, board members said they fired Fiorina because she failed to execute a planned strategy of slashing costs and boosting revenue as quickly as directors had hoped.
CNN reports that Ms. Fiorina’s golden parachute is worth $21,000,000 so I guess I won’t be feeling too terribly sorry for her.
