Pandey On Who Will ‘Carry The Torch Forward’

Nutanix co-founder and CEO Dherraj Pandey dives into a slew of questions around his sudden retirement, who will replace him and the future of Nutanix and its channel community.

“All 6,000 of our employees, all 18,000 of our customers and all 10,000-plus of our channel partners, I know they’re carry the torch forward. I think they’ll understand that this is an extremely personal thing, where, this pandemic did make me think a lot about what really matters,” said Pandey when questioned by CRN about his message to channel partners.

Partners were shocked to learn this week that Pandey is leaving the company he started in 2009 and elevated into a $1.6 billion hyper-converged and hybrid-cloud software superstar. The CEO announced his plans to leave at the same time Nutanix unveiled a whopping $750 million investment from Bain Capital Private Equity as well as reporting a successful fourth fiscal quarter with revenues of $328 million, up 9 percent year over year.

“We figured the best thing to do was make an announcement and sort of disarm the environment, where everybody who reads the news says, ‘You know what? I’d be interested in taking Nutanix to the next level,’” said Pandey. “So casting a wide net was the biggest goal here.”

Pandey takes a deep dive into the type of person Nutanix will select as his successor, if the company is going private and his message to channel partners.
