Arun Kumar Parameswaran appointed Managing Director, VMware India

VMware, Inc., the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced the appointment of Arun Parameswaran to the post of Managing Director, VMware India.

Parameswaran leaves Red Hat India to take up his VMware post on April 24 and will be responsible for the company’s growing business interests in the region.

Holding more than 21 years’ hi-tech experience across Asia Pacific and the US, IT veteran Parameswaran was most recently GM in charge of Red Hat’s business throughout the Indian sub-continent.

Sanjay Mirchandani, VMware’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, said: “This appointment will help accelerate VMware’s progress in one of our prime growth markets, as we work to ensure Indian businesses reap the full benefits of our vision of IT-as-a-Service.”

 

He added: “Arun’s rich mix of skills and experience will build on the robust foundation established and developed by Srini since he joined the company in 2009. Under Arun’s leadership, the VMware India team will be well positioned to capitalise on the enormous opportunities ahead.”

Parameswaran said in a press statement, “I am delighted to be taking up this post because VMware is a pioneer and agent of change leading customer organisations to a whole new era of IT. I firmly believe that VMware’s strategy around the software-defined data centre, hybrid cloud and end-user computing provides the optimum route for customers wanting to capitalise on the seismic shifts taking place in IT today. I look forward to working with the team to accelerate growth such that VMware India plays an even more significant role in the company’s future success.”

VMware has undergone significant expansion in the APJ region and today the company’s footprint in the Indian subcontinent comprises a workforce of approximately 2,300 – including R&D staff, global support, operations, and a sales force.
