VMware Veteran Quietly Leaves to Co-Found a new Mobile Startup

VMware loses a 10 year executive, Srinivas Krishnamurti, the company's Senior Director of Enterprise Mobile Solutions.  Krishnamurti was Senior Director of Enterprise Mobile Solutions for the past three and half years, with responsibility for product management, marketing, business development and partnership strategy for VMware’s mobile products.  

Krishnamurti successfully led VMware into a number of new markets going back all the way to VMware Workstation and then later VMware Fusion.  He most recently played an instrumental role in VMware’s entrance in the mobile space, helping to build a global ecosystem of carrier and device partners.  And he delivered Horizon Mobile to market, the product that uses virtualization to separate corporate and personal data on mobile phones.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he left VMware for an early stage startup, yet to be named, which he is co-founding.  Krishnamurti hasn't said much if anything at all about the new company or the direction of the business.  However, the startup is supposed to be in the enterprise mobile space. 

I once again had the chance to speak with Krishnamurti in a one-on-one at VMworld, so I personally can't wait to see what he is cooking up with his new venture.
