The CEO Effect: Channel Chiefs Discuss Partner Culture, Leadership


Frank Rauch, vice president of VMware's Americas Partner Organization:

I know I am biased, but I think Pat Gelsinger is the best CEO in the industry. This guy's been recruited for many, many of the open [CEO] jobs. He drives the car. I think if you ask any partner that's been around VMware over the last year-and-a-half what the three priorities are of VMware, get them right away because of him. He drives humility, and he's just a very, very genuine guy.
