From Cisco and VMware to cloud services and PCs, here are AHEAD President Stephen Ayoub’s biggest technology bets and investments for 2021.

Still Betting On VMware With Gelsinger Exiting

VMware’s popular CEO Pat Gelsinger sent shockwaves through the industry in December by announcing he would be leaving to become the new CEO of Intel. Ayoub said Gelsinger and VMware are in great shape and AHEAD has no plans to change its tight partnership with the software star this year.

“Pat Gelsinger has the legacy at VMware and helped transform the company to become one of the leading IT companies in the industry. He left the company strong, like any good CEO, he left it in a strong position and on a path to continue to succeed with the right products and the right people in place. I’m not worried about the future of VMware without Pat,” said Ayoub.

AHEAD holds more than 500 VMware certifications along with three VMware Master Services Competencies.
