Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) has promoted Marc Levine to senior vice president and controller, effective May 1.

In his new role, H-P says Levine will help drive financial discipline across the company, reporting directly to chief financial officer Cathie Lesjak.

He is replacing Jim Murrin, who has been appointed to senior vice president and general manager of end-user workplace and managed network services as part of H-P’s enterprise service group.

Levine, an employee of the company since 1988, most recently served as senior vice president of finance for H-P Enterprise Services. He has held a series of leadership positions in finance and medical products, and previously served within its Asia Pacific region.

“Marc has tremendous business acumen, deep knowledge of HP and a broad set of experiences, all of which have been critical to the company in recent years,” said Lesjak
