New Era For Aruba

Aruba Networks founder Keerti Melkote, the technology visionary who will lead the sales charge for the wireless networking vendor effective Feb. 1, talks to CRN about president Dominic Orr's retirement after a decade of running the company.

Melkote, who sees Orr as a "big brother" of sorts that has always been there for him and Aruba, said he was ready to carry the Aruba sales torch forward- stepping into a more prominent customer and partner facing role.

"I will be more outbound now that I am one in a box," he said. "I'll be meeting more with customers and partners. And Dom is not going away. I am going to continue to leverage my relationship with him." Melkote said he also plans to become more vocal with regard to rallying partners to grab share from Cisco.
