Director, Consumer New Product Introduction

The Consumer Personal Systems business organization represents a $10 billion annual revenue business for HP Inc. The organization includes a workforce that focuses on consumer personal computing products, displays and accessories for both consumer and commercial customer segments, and key strategic adjacencies including premium and gaming. Our strategic goal is to reinvent the way people communicate, play, and live.

One of the most fundamental elements that contribute to the success of any Consumer Personal Systems products is to deliver a set of robust deliverables to enable the multitude of go-to-market engines. The Consumer NPI Team has a critical role to work across multiple sources to write an integrated product positioning "story" that the GTM engines then leverage to win customer, retailer, and media preference.

Over the past year, the responsibilities of the NPI team have expanded beyond traditional sell-in deliverables to include acceleration toward the 4P Planning practice. We are also seeing increased demand for new sell-in tools and support for omnichannel environments. Additionally, we recognize increased demand for a new infrastructure that can deliver a broader framework for photography, videos, and address mobile capabilities.

We have an immediate opening for a Senior Manager of our Consumer New Product Introduction team to oversee product positioning and key selling points, sell-in enablement, 4P product launch strategy, and demand generation.

Internal/External Description:

  • Develop engagement strategy with stakeholder organizations in Product Management, CEPS (Customer Experience and Product Strategy), Customer Insights, Product ID/Design, Marketing, Public Relations, Corporate Communications, and other organizations as needed to deliver an integrated product story.
