Clarke: ‘I’ve Never Been More Confident In Our Future’
As Dell announced one of its largest layoff round in its long history, Clarke stated his bullishness about Dell’s future.
“Remember, we’ve navigated economic downturns before and we’ve emerged stronger. We’ll prevail as we always do, for our customers, partners and each other. We’ll be more competitive, more focused and find a new level of operational performance,” said Clarke. “We will be ready when the market rebounds.”
Clarke, who first joined Dell in 1987 and is seen as Michael Dell’s right-hand man, said the opportunities ahead for the company “are immense” due to its technology portfolio in a growing data-centric IT world.
“The amount of data continues to explode. Our innovation is powering progress across the globe. And our customers are turning to us as their trusted partner,” said Clarke. “I’ve never been more confident in our future and our team.”
Dell Technologies is set to report the financial results on March 2, 2023. The company expects to generate around $23.5 billion in total revenue.
