CEO: Michael Dell

Dell Technologies founder and CEO Michael Dell says the big challenge in 2023 is enabling customers financial flexibility during an uncertain global economy.

Specifically, Dell will push customers to more extensively leverage its Dell Financial Services arm this year.

“Technology remains central to driving productivity and progress, and our flexible payment solutions offered through Dell Financial Services help partners and customers acquire technology with lower upfront costs,” said Dell. “We know that in times of uncertainty, customers and partners turn to the organizations they trust.”

Dell Technologies will focus investments around driving its as-a-service offerings, Dell Apex, to drive deals via channel partners including on the cloud and cybersecurity fronts.

“We’re focused on growing and modernizing our core businesses, winning the edge and leading with Dell Apex, from the way we sell and deliver solutions to how we support partners and customers,” said Michael Dell. “Our partners are critical to our success, which is why an omni-channel business model with a robust partner ecosystem is at the core of our strategy.”
