Highlights & Resources

Few could have predicted that Carly Fiorina would become one of America's most visible and influential corporate leaders as well as one of the world's most distinguished business innovators. She is a prominent thought-leader, best-selling author and top policy advisor to both the private and public sectors. A self-made woman, Carly started her business career as a secretary and went on to become the first woman to lead a Fortune 20 company.

Carly served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) from 1999 to 2005, leading the reinvention of the legendary company, tripling its rate of innovation, achieving market leadership, transforming its cost structure and accelerating growth. Despite controversy and opposition, she successfully acquired and integrated Compaq Computer, in what is now seen as the most successful high-tech merger in history. Under her leadership, HP doubled in revenues to $88 Billion and generated 11 patents a day, with significantly improved profitability and cash flow. HP became a leader in every product category and market segment in which it competed.

Currently, Carly is a highly-sought business and political commentator, speaker and strategic counsel to companies and governments worldwide. She is also the first-ever civilian Vice Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, supporting Senate candidates dedicated to enabling private sector growth, innovation and competitiveness.
