Sanjay Poonen

Position: Global Chief Operating Officer

Years At VMware: 8

One of the front-runners to replace former CEO Pat Gelsinger this year, Sanjay Poonen said he is leaving VMware to pursue his “next adventure.” Poonen is a highly respected and well-known IT executive who currently oversees all of VMware’s sales, alliances and customer operations on a worldwide basis as chief operating officer of customer operations. He also leads the Security Business at VMware and was previously general manager of VMware’s end-user computing (EUC) group, driving the business into a $1 billion run rate.

On social media last week, Poonen said he was proud of the friendships and products he built at VMware. “Also excited about what I’m going to be doing next. More on my next adventure in the next few weeks and months, stay tuned,” he wrote.

He also congratulated Raghuram on winning the CEO role. “Big week for Raghu Raghuram,” Poonen wrote on Twitter this week. “New CEO of VMware, delighted for him, he’s been like an elder bro to me!”

New Position: Poonen has yet to announce his next move after he departs VMware this year.
