vmware appoints new channel leader

Venkatesh Murali joins VMware as the new channel leader of Nascent and Vietnam while the company plans to drive growth through emerging Southeast Asian markets.

Previously, Murali was part of Lenovo and now he is joining the software vendor intending to lead expansion efforts in Vietnam and other developing markets like Cambodia, Myanmar, and Laos. Vietnam is considered the fastest-growing internet economy in Southeast Asia and it is among the top four economies in GDP growth in the region in 2019.

“VMware is excited to deepen our support for business transformation in the fast-growing region as it plugs into the digital economy,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, vice president and managing director of Southeast Asia and Korea at VMware.

Murali will be backed by Tien Phat Technology JSC (Tpcoms), a company that recently became the first cloud verified partner of VMware in Vietnam. Tpcoms recently launched TPCloud with the help of the VMware Cloud Provider Program and the initiative will provide large scale customers full access to the vendor’s cloud technologies across the country.

Channel partners are key to VMware’s strategy to build an ecosystem in both developed and developing markets and enterprises can only spark innovation by accessing and utilizing cloud capabilities.
