Dell Layoffs, VMware Remote Worker Pay Cuts: 7 Key Points
Here’s everything you need to know about the recent layoffs at Dell Technologies and employee salary cuts at VMware for remote workers.
New Channel Leaders At Both Dell And VMware
This year, both Dell Technologies and VMware have selected new global channel leaders responsible for leading billions in annual sales. Dell channel partners, for example, generate approximately $50 billion in sales for the $92 billion infrastructure giant.
After 21 years at Dell Technologies, Joyce Mullen left the company on Aug. 14. Dell has hired Cisco’s former president of Canada Rola Dagher (pictured) as its new worldwide channel leader.
“I have a degree in getting things done, and getting things done really quickly,” said Dagher in an interview with CRN. “This is the most important role of the organization, which is the partner ecosystem and the channel partner organization. It starts with our partners and ends with our partners.”
VMware’s global channel leader, Jenni Flinders, unexpectedly and quietly left the company in June after two years of leading VMware’s restructured channel charge. Flinders created VMware Master Services Competencies and completely overhauled VMware’s entire partner program with the launch of Partner Connect on March 1. Flinders was replaced by former longtime Cisco veteran Sandy Hogan.
