Dell On The Record

With roughly three months to go before the anticipated close of Dell's $62 billion acquisition of EMC, the company Tuesday named John Byrne as Dell-EMC's global channel chief.

Dell Chairman and CEO Michael Dell said in an exclusive interview with CRN that Byrne has proven his ability to drive channel growth during his time over the past year overseeing the company's channel as global vice president for sales strategy, operations and channels for the last year. He reassured partners that they'd get to know Byrne better very soon.
