Channel sources have speculated for months about who will replace Adrian Jones as top channel poobah at HP. In the last week, speculation narrowed down to candidates from IBM, but the winner looks to be Stephen DiFranco from Lenovo.

Sources close to HP said the deal was close to closed early this week and now CRN is reporting that DiFranco has resigned from Lenovo where he was vice president and general manager of Lenovo’s Consumer group.

DiFranco also spent time at AMD and Maxtor.

HP will host its first big partner conference in three years in late April, and everyone expected the vacancy to be filled by then.
