Thermo Fisher Scientific has elected Dion Weisler to its board of directors, bringing the total number of Thermo Fisher board members to 12.

Weisler has been president and chief executive officer of HP since November 2015, following the separation of Hewlett-Packard into two independent companies; he also serves on the HP board of directors. Prior to that, Weisler was executive vice president of Hewlett-Packard’s Printing and Personal Systems Business for four years.

During his more than 25 years of experience in the information technology industry, Weisler has led businesses in at least eight international markets. Before joining HP, he was with Lenovo as vice president and chief operating officer of its Product and Mobile Internet Digital Home groups, and led the company’s Global Transaction Model worldwide. Previously, Weisler served as general manager of Lenovo’s operations in Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Earlier in his career, he was general manager at Telstra Corporation, Australia’s leading telecommunications company. He also had an 11-year career at Acer, where he became managing director of the company’s operations in the UK after establishing and leading the company’s businesses in Central and Eastern Europe. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in applied science computing from Monash University in Australia.

“We are delighted to welcome Dion to our board,” said Jim Manzi, chairman of the board of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “He brings many years of experience in international business and digital technology strategies. Given his background and global perspective, Dion will add valuable insights as we focus more and more on leveraging new digital capabilities to create a differentiated experience for our customers.”
