RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, April 14, 2022 – Today, Lenovo announced that Global CIO, Arthur Hu, has been appointed to 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. R&D remains a high priority for Lenovo, as Lenovo plans to expand its “New IT” architecture of “Client-Edge-Cloud-Network-Intelligence.”
Hu will continue to serve as Lenovo’s Chief Information Officer, responsible for company-wide intelligent transformation. Since Global IT was merged into SSG, Art will play an expanded and defining role in the evolution of Lenovo’s business and IT processes, which contributed to significant Q3 profitability growth.
Since joining Lenovo in 2009, Hu has held numerous executive and operational leadership roles in the company and is a member of the Lenovo Executive Committee.
Ken Wong, EVP and President, Solutions and Services Group: “I am confident that under Art’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.”
Arthur Hu: “I’m 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.”
