Hewlett Packard Enterprise has named Jennifer Temple, a 25-year communications veteran who was most recently senior vice president of corporate communications at Wells Fargo, as its new chief communications officer.
In an internal memo announcing Temple's appointment, HPE CEO Antonio Neri called Temple a great "cultural fit" for HPE. "She understands the importance of partnership and is an advocate for building collaborative cultures," said Neri. "She has an innovative spirit, and her track record proves that she has a bias for action."
Before joining Wells Fargo in 2012, Temple was an executive vice president for Hill + Knowlton Strategies, where she worked as an advisor on "corporate reputation, executive advocacy and competitive and market positioning" for a number of Silicon Valley companies including HP and LinkedIn. "During her time with H+K, Jennifer served as the global account lead for Hewlett-Packard, so she understands our legacy, rich heritage and culture of innovation," said Neri.
