She is considering another position as chief executive. "It should be the right place", said Whitman, 61, who was formerly Ebay boss and ran for governor of California in 2010. "I've been working non-stop for 35 years so I will definitely take some time off to recharge."

The Republican is not planning any further candidacies, said spokesman Henry Gomez. She has stated that she would consider a position in the Donald Trump administration but had publicly supported Democrat Hillary Clinton last year. Whitman also did not participate in any of Trump's IT initiatives.

The Wall Street Journal reported back in September that Whitman was preparing to leave HPE.

On October 6, 2014, the company announced that Hewlett-Packard Enterprise would combine IT infrastructure, software and services for large companies. At HP Inc. all print and PC products run under the old company logo.

When it was taken over by Whitman, Hewlett-Packard was one of the largest IT companies with annual sales of $ 127 billion and 350,000 employees. HPE has 52,000 employees and 2017 sales of $ 28.9 billion after the services and software divestment and multiple waves of mass layoffs. The market capitalization is $ 23 billion.
