Rajiv Ramaswami

Left To Become: CEO of Nutanix

Replaced By: Raghu Raghuram

VMware is currently suing its former Chief Operating Officer Rajiv Ramaswami after his departure from VMware to become CEO of rival Nutanix.

Ramaswami was chief operating officer of products and cloud services at VMware for the past four years before jumping to Nutanix in December to replace retiring CEO and co-founder Dheeraj Pandey.

At VMware, Ramaswami was responsible for business units developing products, cloud services and cloud operations.

VMware has filed litigation in the Superior Court of the State of California against Ramaswami accusing him of meeting with Nutanix executives in his bid for Nutanix’s opening CEO position during the same time he was tasked with building and running VMware’s cloud business. VMware is taking Ramaswami to court for “material and ongoing breaches of his legal and contractual duties and obligations to VMware,” said VMware in a statement.

Ramaswami is an industry all-star with a career spanning three decades in top executive roles for VMware, Broadcom, Cisco, Nortel and IBM.

VMware’s Raghu Raghuram replaced Ramaswami and is now leading the company’s entire Products and Cloud Services team while he continues in his role as executive vice president and COO.
