David O'Callaghan

VMware scored a big win with its appointment of Cisco executive Dave O'Callaghan as channel chief last spring. O'Callaghan assumed the role of senior vice president of global channels and alliances, which had been vacated earlier in the year by former channel chief Scott Aronson. O'Callaghan had previously spent several years at Cisco as vice president of worldwide commercial sales and vice president of worldwide distribution. He also founded his own IT consulting firm, O'Callaghan Capital, in 2011.
