Rudi Richter

Hewlett-Packard Company, Sales Manager Public Sector
Rudi Richter has been appointed Director for Government and Public Affairs with the launch of the new HP in May 2002.

In his function he is heading the ISE region (International Sales Europe) in terms of all government related business.
Austria, Switzerland, Central & Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East are all part of this region (about 110 countries in total).

Rudi has started his career with HP in 1996 in HP’s Professional Services Organization as Project Manager for Central and Eastern Europe. He has been working in the delivery of large government projects in Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and the Ukraine.

In 1997 Rudi became responsible for HP’s newly formed HP Consulting department for the Commonwealth of Independent States (C.I.S.). During that time HP delivered a world leading government solution project in that region – the State Treasury System for Kazakhstan, currently considered THE showcase for the World Bank and IMF in the emerging markets for Treasury solutions.

In 1999 Rudi took the challenge of opening the first direct presence of any IT company in Ramallah in the Palestinian Territories, working on a blue-print of a government IT infrastructure build from scratch and financed by PPP models.

Due to political reasons Rudi moved 2001 to Egypt and became the GM of HP Egypt. He build up the HP presence from scratch, growing to a total number of 20 employees by mid 2002.  During that time HP implemented one of the largest USAID funded projects in the region.

With the merge of HP and Compaq in May 2002 Rudi became responsible for the whole government sector. HP currently holds the number one position in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa in Government Solutions and is committed to serve its customer by delivering outstanding value and know how in this solution space.

  • Public Private Partnership by HP   |   Kongres ITAPA 2003
    Rudi Richter will be speaking about HP's initiative to use "Public Private Partnership" models to finance IT infrastructure for the Public Sector. HP has some recent large projects in Central and Eastern Europe that where completely financed and delivered as turnkey solutions by HP for government institutions. This allowed government to implement these projects without upfront investment costs and to generate even additional revenues (fees) since the functionality of the projects allowed a higher level of services to the citizens.
