VMware appoints APAC general manager

Dutton is responsible for strategic planning, business development and management of key functions for the region, including sales, channels, services, finance and marketing.

"VMware has clearly established virtualisation as the fundamental platform to transform both business and government by delivering on the promise to do more with less," said Dutton.

"I am excited to join this strong global team at VMware - a team that is leading the way in the virtualisation revolution. 

"Across the Asia Pacific region, we are focused not only on meeting the immediate need of organisations for quick returns through leveraging virtualisation technologies for server consolidation, IT resource pooling and automation, we are, at the same time, focused on leading the next wave of innovation in virtualisation by making cloud computing a reality.

"This two-pronged approach will underpin VMware's next phase of growth in Asia Pacific," he added.

Dutton holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Sydney University. He is based in Sydney, Australia.

He will report to Carl Eschenbach, executive vice president of Worldwide Field Operations, for VMware.

Prior to his appointment, Dutton worked for Computer Associates (CA) as senior vice president and general manager of International Business, responsible for sales and business operations throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ) regions.

He has more than 27 years of global management and sales experience across various industries, including IT and financial services. 

He also has extensive knowledge of the Asia Pacific region, having held senior management positions in BEA Systems EMEA (based in London), IBM Software Group Asia Pacific (based in Tokyo), Visa International Asia Pacific (based in Singapore) and Australia's Norwich Union Financial Services Group.
