Raghu Raghuram

VMware appointed company veteran Raghu Raghuram as its new CEO after a nearly four-month search to find a new chief executive to replace former Pat Gelsinger, who left earlier this year to lead Intel. Zane Rowe, VMware’s CFO, had been the company’s interim CEO.

Raghuram is a longtime VMware executive who first joined VMware in 2003 running product management for VMware vSphere and ESX. During his 18-year tenure at VMware, Raghuram served in various general manager and executive vice president roles, including head of cloud infrastructure and management, as well as head of VMware’s software defined data center division. Raghuram was most recently chief operating officer of Products and Cloud Services, responsible for all of VMware’s product and service offerings as well as centralized services, support and operational functions.
