Meg Whitman, chief executive officer and president of Hewlett-Packard, speaks during the grand opening of the company's Executive Briefing Center in Palo Alto, California in this January 16, 2013 file photo. When Hewlett-Packard Co was removed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average a month ago, Whitman sent an impassioned email to the company's 300,000-plus employees. "I hope that every HP employee took today's announcement personally," she said in the one-page internal memo on Sept. 10. Calling HP's departure from the benchmark index it joined in 1997 a "blow to our brand," Whitman said the moved showed many people still harbored doubts about her turnaround plan.
