Sanjay Deshmukh To Head VMware’s EUC Biz

He joins from Citrix Systems India, where he was area VP, Indian subcontinent for more than four years

VMware has named Sanjay Deshmukh as Head of End User Computing Business, Asia Pacific Japan.

He will join VMware from Citrix Systems India, where he was Area Vice President, Indian Subcontinent for more than four years.

The IT veteran will be responsible for VMware’s end-user computing (EUC) business throughout markets in the company’s Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region.

VMware’s EUC strategy was reinforced earlier this month when the company launched the industry’s most comprehensive desktop solution. VMware Horizon 6 enables customers to transform their applications and desktops for the mobile cloud era – extending access to employees on any device, anywhere, simply, securely and cost-effectively. In late February, VMware acquired AirWatch, a leader in enterprise mobile management and security solutions covering laptops, peripherals and wearables.

Reporting to Sanjay Mirchandani, VMware’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for the APJ region, Deshmukh takes up his new post on May 12 and will be based in Singapore.

Mirchandani said, “We are making this appointment at a very important stage of our development in end-user computing. Sanjay’s experience and expertise will help us build on the establishment of our EUC portfolio across Asia Pacific as the solution of choice for enterprises in the mobile cloud era.”

He added, “VMware’s EUC capability is the envy of our industry and offers the best solution in terms of empowering employees to access enterprise applications and data on any device from any location, securely and cost-effectively.”
