HP Names MS Exec Robert Youngjohns to Run Autonomy

Hewlett Packard has turned to Microsoft’s Robert Youngjohns in its search for a new head of HP’s acquisition of Autonomy software unit. Youngjohns comes to HP as the past President of Microsoft’s North American operations.

Youngjohns will have his work cut out for him. Since HP closed on its acquisition of Autonomy 11 months ago, the unit hasn’t met expectations, and CEO Meg Whitman has made no secret about being unhappy about it.
