Duncan Hewett has been named as the new VMware Asia Pacific and Japan senior vice president and general manager.

Hewett starts his new role on August 9 and replaces Sanjay Mirchandani who left VMware in April to join Puppet Labs.

Hewett has nearly 30 years experience, working at IBM since 1987 where he kicked started his career on large water-cooled mainframe systems.

During the years, he eventually worked his way through to becoming Asia Pacific vice president for IBM Software.

Hewett said his top priority will be to help its customers accelerate their digital transformation.

“We are well positioned in the region, and I am looking forward to leading the team to new heights in a region now regarded as one of VMware’s growth engines,” he said.

VMware executive vice president of worldwide sales, Maurizio Carli, said APJ was one of its best performing geographical regions.

“A substantial opportunity lies ahead for VMware in this part of the world," he said.

"Duncan’s experience in the software industry, as well as his deep understanding of the Asia Pacific markets, will help us take our APJ business to the next level."

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
