So why leave Dell after 21 years?
This is obviously a tough decision. I feel like I’m part of the furniture, since I’ve been around for 21 years. I’ve been able to contribute to making Dell Technologies the great company that it is. When I stepped back and talked about it with my husband and my kids, it became really clear that I want to go be a member of a very senior leadership team at a smaller company and do it again—make another company really terrific. I’ve had a great opportunities at Dell Technologies, and I’m really grateful for that, but I want to do it again at another company.
The timing works fairly well for me personally to make this transition now. I’m really excited about the new challenges of doing that – maybe learning some new technologies, learning a new industry – I’m pretty excited about it.
