1. Dheeraj Pandey

President, CEO


Since co-founding the company in 2009, hyper-converged infrastructure company Nutanix has shot off like a rocket in the market under the leadership of President and CEO Dheeraj Pandey, going head to head with big-name vendors such as VMware. This year has been a busy one for the company, with rumors of a Cisco acquisition and questions raised from VMware on the company's customer support. Through it all, Pandey has held his ground, vigorously squashing rumors, defending his company and its partners, and even taking direct shots at the competition.

Coming from the traditional enterprise space with a background at Oracle, Pandey brings an innovative approach to leadership at Nutanix that challenges the vendor status quo and has a meticulous focus on sustainable growth. That leadership has driven the company to be the fastest-growing infrastructure company in the past decade, displacing market leaders, surpassing a $2 billion valuation and setting it on the path to an IPO. That growth isn't stopping any time soon, executives told CRN, and Nutanix is committed to continuing that momentum in 2015 and beyond.
