Ousted Hewlett-Packard Co. Chairwoman Patricia Dunn has stepped down from her position as non-executive vice chairman of Barclays Global Investors after more than four years in the position, the company said Friday.
Dunn took up the role after resigning as global chief executive in 2002 to fight cancer, the company said in a statement.
"It has been a wonderful privilege to be among those who have been leaders of this organization," Dunn said.
Dunn has been charged with conspiracy and fraud for directing a probe into an internal leak at H-P and was released after surrendering to authorities in San Jose, California, on Thursday. She stands accused, along with four other H-P executives, of using illegal tactics to monitor the phone calls of board members and journalists.
Dunn's lawyer has said she fought for good corporate governance her entire career and will vigorously fight the charges against her.
Barclays Global Investors, owned by Barclays PLC, manages over US$1.6 trillion (euro1.3 trillion) for more than 2,800 clients.
