New Chief Technology Officer Steps In

The current chief executive officer at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) has been promoted to oversee Xerox’s global research centers.
According to Xerox, Steve Hoover will be the chief technology officer, effective from January 1, 2017. In his new role, Hoover is responsible for research and product development under direct lead of Jeff Jacobson, CEO of Xerox after the split. In addition to PARC, Hoover will also take care of Xerox Research Center Canada and Xerox Research Center Europe, as well as Xerox’s globally distributed product development and engineering capabilities.
Hoover joined PARC in 2011, and helped transform PARC from Xerox’s flagship research laboratory to a world-class R&D organization. Previously, Hoover held a variety of roles in both product development and research, leading long-term technology investments in analytics, digital manufacturing, intelligent systems, distributed and cloud computing, nanotechnology, mobile, the future of work, and advanced printing and mass customization technologies.
“Steve’s experience at PARC provides a great foundation for building on Xerox’s strong innovation heritage,” said Jacobson. “His leadership will help drive new, cutting-edge technologies that redefine how work gets done for our customers – leading the way to enhanced productivity, efficiency and profitability”
Sophie Vandebroek, current chief technology officer, will retire at the end of this year, after serving the company for more than a decade.
