Yesterday, September 10, VMware announced the appointment of Pamela Craig, former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Accenture, to its board of directors.

With more than 34 years of industry experiences Pamela Craig served Accenture in various operational and finance roles, now after her retirement she has been selected to come after Renee James, who served as a member of the VMware mergers and acquisitions committee  since September 2007 and informed of her resignation on September 5, to focus on her responsibilities as President of Intel Corp.

Craig, in her 34 years history at Accenture, was one of the key members who focused on rigorous financial discipline that has contributed to Accenture’s performance. Ms. Craig’s long experience in the market will help contributing with a deep understanding of the challenges technology companies face in a rapidly changing environment. Further to her new role in VMware, Ms. Craig is also a director of Akamai Technologies, where she is currently the chair of the Audit Committee.

After the latest flow of executives, VMware finally is making the effort to replace its Directors, definitely the change will give a fresh air to the company.

New VMware board of directors, Pamela Craig, declared:
VMware is strategically positioned to thrive amid significant changes occurring in the technology industry, I look forward to working with the VMware board and executive leadership team to help the company navigate the evolving industry landscape and continue its strong leadership in virtualization, and helping companies advance their software-defined data center architecture.

Pat, Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, welcome the new member of the board of directors with these words:
We are thrilled to have a distinguished industry veteran such as Pamela Craig join the VMware board of directors, with her strong industry track record, we believe Pam will be a great addition to the VMware board to help the company move its strategic direction forward in the near and long term. We also extend much gratitude to Renee James for her significant contributions to VMware since the company went public in 2007. As a director, Renee has played a key role in helping VMware become the industry’s benchmark for virtualization and cloud infrastructure. We thank her for helping VMware get to the next phase in our journey to deliver the software-defined data center, hybrid cloud and enterprise mobility solutions for our customers.
