VMware Expands EUC Team with Industry Veterans

A few weeks ago, VMware made a host of announcements at VMworld around their End User Computing initiatives.  And now, to further bolster what they intend to do on that journey, the virtualization giant has added two new industry experts to their EUC team: Mark Margevicius and Shawn Bass.

Margevicius is a former VP and research director at Gartner for the last 15 years.  While at Gartner, he specialized in desktop virtualization, hosted virtual desktops, PC hardware, and server-based computing.  During this time, he assisted clients in the selection of solutions appropriate for their needs and best practices for client-side policies and procedures.  In his new role at VMware, he will help VMware customers advance their EUC strategy and vision.  And he will play an integral role in helping VMware customers transition their end-user computing environments to the mobile-cloud.  

Bass is a well-known and respected individual in the virtualization community.  He is a recognized expert in the desktop virtualization industry and has more than 20 years of consulting experience working with terminal services, application virtualization and VDI technologies. During his career, he provided consulting services to a wide variety of vertical markets including financial services, insurance, high tech, ISVs, health care, higher education, oil/gas, and state and federal governments.  In his new role at VMware, Bass will help lead and define a long-term strategy for VMware desktop products and work closely with the product team in implementing the strategy in the years to come.

“Altogether, this represents a dream team with deep insight into end-user computing and desktop technologies,” said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager of desktop products for VMware End-User Computing.  “Collectively, we remain focused on delivering the best solutions to transition the PC-centric end-user computing architectures to the mobile-cloud. I am honored and proud to be working with this team of executives.”

And let's not forget, VMware also expanded the team with the acquisition of CloudVolumes, bringing Harry Labana on board to continue the work he was doing by leading the CloudVolumes effort at VMware.  And if you watched the Day 2 Keynote during VMworld 2014, you already know how important the CloudVolumes technology is to VMware's future plans.
