Dheeraj Pandey On Nutanix Stock Price Fall: ‘Naysayers Are Best Ignored’

What’s your message to all of Nutanix’s doubters out there who saw your stock drop?

[Former Cisco CEO and Chairman] John Chambers used to say this, ‘The only way you can go from being a good company to a great company is when you go through these kinds of shortfalls.’ You can’t be a great company unless you actually go through these temporary setbacks. There’s another saying that goes on at Amazon that one of our employees said to me, which basically reads as, ‘Steady progress towards seemingly impossible goals will win the day.’ So setbacks are temporary. Naysayers are best ignored. That’s what we really believe in. It’s really brought the company together. The best of companies have had stock drops like this. You go back to Adobe 2009 to 2012, Salesforce’s 2009 to 2012, and Amazon’s journey from 2003 to 2007 -- that’s where the vulnerability of these companies emerge. If you build something bold and audacious, you got to fall. But once you fall, how do you rise to the occasion and how do you learn from those mistakes is what builds great companies.
