Virtualisation and cloud infrastructure solutions provider, VMware, announced today that Sanjay Deshmukh will join the company as Head of End User Computing Business, Asia Pacific Japan.
Deshmukh was formerly the Area Vice President, Indian Subcontinent, for Citrix Systems India for the past four years. Prior to his career at Citrix, he has also held senior leadership roles at SAP India and Business Objects Software India.
