Chief Transformation Officer Marie Myers will become acting finance chief, succeeding Steve Fieler, who is joining Alphabet Inc.’s Google, the company said Wednesday.

Ms. Myers, an HP veteran who served as finance lead for the company’s businesses during the Hewlett-Packard Co. split, returned to HP in March and had served as chief transformation officer since June. She’s slated to take on the additional duties of CFO on a temporary basis as of Oct. 1 while the company searches for a permanent successor.

Mr. Fieler, who’s held the CFO role since 2018, is leaving HP in October to become business finance officer at Google. He will report to Ruth Porat, senior vice president and CFO at Alphabet and Google, and focus on the platforms and ecosystems business, a Google representative said.

“He built a world-class team that is delivering strong results and I am grateful for his many contributions to our business,” Chief Executive Enrique Lores said in a statement.

“Marie’s leadership has been integral to our success as she transforms the way we work to better serve customers and maximize efficiency,” Mr. Lores said, adding, “Her experience in finance strategy, cost management and restructuring will ensure a seamless transition as we continue to position HP for the future.”
