HP names legal chief
HP has recruited Julie Jacobs as its new chief legal officer and general counsel, according to a LinkedIn post from HP president and CEO Enrique Lores.
Lores writes that Jacobs will start work with the tech company next month. She joins HP from Yahoo where she has been senior executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Jacobs spent 16 years at AOL in several in-house legal roles including, from 2010 to 2017, executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. She led the integration of the Yahoo and AOL legal departments following Verizon’s acquisition of Yahoo in June 2017, Verizon having bought AOL in 2015. Jacobs then led the Yahoo legal team following Yahoo’s acquisition by private equity firm Apollo Global Management in September 2021.
Lores says in his post: ‘Julie is a terrific executive who has led world-class legal, regulatory, government relations and compliance functions throughout her career. She will be an excellent addition to our leadership team as we continue building a stronger HP. Looking forward to seeing you soon, Julie!’
