Brian Gammage, formerly a Gartner fellow, will fill the role
Virtualisation and cloud infrastructure company VMware has created a new position for a chief market technologist, which will be filled by former Gartner fellow, Brian Gammage.
"I'm extremely excited to be joining VMware, a company that is modernising and simplifying IT for all organisations. The prospect of users having access from any device to any application, enabled by cloud computing, is becoming a reality and VMware is a leader in this change. Having advised on these issues for many years, I'm now looking forward to helping VMware's customers deliver real value to their organisations through effective implementations," said Gammage.
Gammage will be based out of the UK and will work closely with customers on the secure delivery of applications and data from any device for the benefit of end-users.
Gammage has worked with Gartner, HP, Olivetti Systems and Acorn Computers resulting in over 25 years IT sector experience.
"It's a real coup to have hired Brian and we're delighted to welcome him aboard. Having advised some of the world's largest companies for more than a decade, he brings a very valuable perspective at a crucial time for enterprise IT. Establishing a new end-user computing model is a fundamental component of VMware's vision for IT as a Service and Brian will play a major role in making it a reality for customers," said Chris Young, vice president and general manager, End User Computing VMware.
Gammage's appointment is effective immediately.
