导读：据可靠消息透露，惠普董事会在周三召集会议考虑辞去任职不满一年的CEO Leo Apotheker, 同时将邀请eBay的前CEO Meg Whitman上任该职。这家硅谷的传奇巨头公司正极力挽回其下降的企业信誉。Leo Apotheker如果被辞，这将是惠普这家美国销售额最大的科技公司董事会辞去的第三位CEO.
Hewlett-Packard Co's board convened on Wednesday to consider ousting Chief Executive Officer Leo Apotheker after less than a year on the job and replacing him temporarily with former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, a source familiar with the matter said.
HP's board of directors - facing shareholder lawsuits and intensifying criticism from investors - is thrashing out a host of issues, including whether to name Whitman as the interim CEO, the source told Reuters.
The storied Silicon Valley giant is fighting to restore its crumbling credibility. During his 11-month tenure, Apotheker slashed sales forecasts repeatedly, backtracked on promises to integrate Palm's webOS software into devices, and struggled to halt a 50 percent plunge in the share price.
No decisions have yet been made about leadership, the source said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
Wall Street roared its approval, sending HP shares up 6.6 percent to close at $23.96, a gain of $3 billion in the company's market value.
