Less than a year after hiring Léo Apotheker as its chief
executive, Hewlett-Packard’s directors were meeting Wednesday to
consider replacing him, according to several people with knowledge

the former chief executive of eBay, who was sought for her ability
to run a large technology company, they said.

company over its strategy, but also the directors’ difficulties
in choosing the leadership of the company.
