CRN Exclusive Q&A: Former VCE VP On Why He Jumped To Red Hat


What is your message to the sales team at Red Hat?

Today is my second day. We are at the sales meeting. I will be addressing the team tomorrow.

First of all, I think that Red Hat is extremely well-positioned in the marketplace. One of the things that attracted me was the whole open-source [movement]. It is clearly driving IT transformation. The model is open. It is future proof. There is no vendor lock-in, and it is extremely cost efficient for customers.

I think there is a strong opportunity to drive increased revenues and profits in that space. That is one of the things that attracted me.
