Lenovo announced that Global chief information officer, Arthur Hu (peak)has been appointed chief technology officer of the Solutions & Services Group (SSG).
In his new role, Hu will lead the newly formed Research and Development (R&D) organization within SSG, tapped to bring new innovative solutions to the market, the tech giant said in a statement.
It added that R&D remains a high priority for Lenovo, as the company plans to expand its “New IT” architecture of “Client-Edge-Cloud-Network-Intelligence”.
Additionally, Hu will continue to serve as Lenovo’s chief information officer, responsible for company-wide intelligent transformation, Lenovo said.
Since Global IT was merged into SSG, Hu will play an expanded and defining role in the evolution of Lenovo’s business and IT processes, which contributed to significant Q3 profitability growth, it added.
He has held numerous executive and operational leadership roles in the company and is a member of the Lenovo Executive Committee, since joining Lenovo in 2009, the company said.
Ken Wong, executive vice president and president, Solutions and Services Group said he is confident that under Hu’s leadership of R&D, the Solutions and Services Group will further accelerate company-wide capabilities to develop and deliver solutions most relevant to our customers.
“This is the perfect flywheel as we continue to build, test and use these solutions internally, before commercializing them externally,” he added.
Meanwhile, Arthur Hu said he is excited to lead this dynamic team that brings together technologists and creators while also taking Lenovo’s Group IT to the next level as part of SSG.
“New IT will power the next generation of technology services and experiences for consumers and businesses alike, and there couldn’t be a better time to develop innovative solutions for our customers around the world,” he added.
Formed in April last year, Lenovo’s Solutions and Services Group brings together the company’s best solutions across a range of products and capabilities, and packages them into end-to-end, outcome-based solutions.
Under the umbrella brand of Lenovo TruScale, these offerings are available as-a-service, providing customers with operational and payment simplicity, as well as the flexibility to scale up or down depending on their changing business needs.
