About Meg Whitman
President and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard, Margaret Cushing “Meg” Whitman, has a net worth of $2 billion as of June 2016, according to Forbes’ list of billionaires. Whitman served as President and Chief Executive Officer of eBay from 1998 to 2008. After a failed run for governor of California, the former eBay chief has set a new priority: scouring Silicon Valley for entrepreneurs through her new position as a strategic partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Good timing, as her fortune continues to rise thanks to a firm grip on millions of eBay shares. Whitman is back on the board of directors of HP and Procter & Gamble where she served from 2003 to 2008 before taking time off for her political foray. She also signed on to the board of ZipCar, which saw shares soar after its April debut on the NASDAQ exchange. Whitman turned down Warren Buffett’s invitation in 2010 to join the Giving Pledge, in which billionaires agree to donate half their fortune to charity. She was named CEO of Hewlett-Packard on September 22, 2011.
