The 15-year global services veteran joins VMware as the company aims to add a hybrid cloud service offering to its software-defined data center product, the company said Wednesday.
“I look forward to leading the new hybrid cloud services business unit and partnering with our ecosystem to provide customers the ultimate flexibility in how they deploy existing and new applications – on-premise, off-premise, or through whatever combination works best for their business needs,” Fathers said.
He led Savvis’ sales, marketing, product development, global operations and corporate functions in North America, Europe and Asia.
According to VMware, he has helped scale business from start-up to more than $1 billion in revenue and holds ecosystem experience in building partnerships across service provider, ISV and system integrator communities.
