Personal computer manufacturer Lenovo has hired Michael O'Neill as senior vice-president and general counsel from US firm Howrey.
O'Neill will be responsible for the company's legal, corporate governance, security and government relations globally and will be reporting directly to the company's chief executive and president William Amelio.
