Succeeds T Srinivasan, who has decided to step down after five years with the company

VMware has appointed Arun Parameswaran to the post of managing director, VMware India. He succeeds T Srinivasan, who has decided to step down after five years with the company.

Parameswaran leaves Red Hat India to take up his VMware post on April 24 and will be responsible for the company’s growing business interests in the region. He will report to Sanjay Mirchandani, VMware’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, and will join the APJ Leadership Team.

Mirchandani said, “This appointment will help accelerate VMware’s progress in one of our prime growth markets, as we work to ensure Indian businesses reap the full benefits of our vision of IT-as-a-Service.”

He added, “Arun’s rich mix of skills and experience will build on the robust foundation established and developed by Srini since he joined the company in 2009. Under Arun’s leadership, the VMware India team will be well positioned to capitalise on the enormous opportunities ahead.”

Holding more than 21 years’ hi-tech experience across Asia Pacific and the US, IT veteran Parameswaran was most recently GM in charge of Red Hat’s business throughout the Indian sub-continent.

He said: “I am delighted to be taking up this post because VMware is a pioneer and agent of change leading customer organisations to a whole new era of IT. I look forward to working with the team to accelerate growth such that VMware India plays an even more significant role in the company’s future success.”

Parameswaran attended the Thiagarajar College of Engineering at Madurai Kamaraj University and holds a Bachelor of Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering.
