During her 17 years with Hewlett Packard-Compaq, McDowell has served for 5 years as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Industry-Standard Servers, a $7 billion business, and led its expansion into new technology areas as well as business model transformation. McDowell helped create and build this business, the world’s largest server franchise, which has held number one market share in a highly competitive segment for over a decade. She joined Compaq as a systems engineer in 1986.


In 2000, McDowell was named one of the Top 20 Women in Technology in Houston. She serves on the Board of Visitors for the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.  She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.
