Executive Vice President and Chief Legal and Administrative Officer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise


John Schultz spent many years as a complex and commercial litigation lawyer before moving in-house with HP in 2008. John served as Deputy General Counsel for Litigation Investigations and Global Functions, managing all litigation filed against HP around the world, before becoming General Counsel in 2012. In 2013 he received the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution's Corporate Leadership Award for leadership in alternative dispute resolution.   

While the company as a whole has a strong commitment to diversity, HP's legal team is also active.
