VMware’s new leadership team is taking shape
VMware’s new executive leadership team is coming into focus as Raghu Raghuram prepares to officially take over the reins as CEO on June 1st.
However, several of VMware’s top executives will not be together during the trip, as the virtualization and software superstar enters the Raghuram era with the goal of turning VMware into the pivot of multi-cloud computing. With VMware about to become an independent company for the first time in more than 15 years after its derivation from Dell Technologies later this year, Raghuram is optimistic about the future.
“The fact that we’re coming out of Dell, you can almost think of us as multi-cloud Switzerland,” Raghuram, executive vice president of VMware, chief operating officer and soon to become CEO, said in a recent interview with CRN. “We are hardware agnostics, cloud agnostics and we can really focus on helping our customers run their applications and run their IT, the way they want. We provide the tools to help them build new apps faster, run them in all these locations, manage these apps, protect them, etc., that’s what we try to do in a nutshell. “
