Steve Fieler, head of treasury and corporate finance at HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ), has been promoted to chief financial officer of the personal computer and printer systems maker in a move that takes effect July 1.

HP said Tuesday the 11-year company veteran will succeed Cathie Lesjak, who will serve as interim chief operating officer until her planned retirement in early 2019.

He left the company in 2014 and returned last year after he served as CFO at Proteus Digital Health.

Lesjak’s 32-year career includes time as Hewlett-Packard’s acting CEO and finance chief.
