VMware’s GM for networking and security jumps to Google

Submitted by on March 5, 2018 – 9:15 pmNo Comment

Jeff Jennings, VMware’s senior veep and general manager for security and networking has left the company to join Google. Jennings was a 20-year VMware veteran and had been entrusted with VMware’s hottest growth business, networking. VMware also sees a great future for its security business, with the hypervisor-native App Defense thought to be one of several products the company has up its sleeve.

Losing the head of those businesses therefore looks like a bit of a speed bump for VMware. A VMware spokesperson told us Jennings “… has made a personal career decision and left the company effective February 16. We thank Jeff for his passion and commitment and wish him well. As we look for a new leader, Rajiv Ramaswami will assume the role of acting leader for the Networking and Security Business Unit.”
