The VMware executive replacement continues at fast pace since the replacement of Diane Greene with Paul Maritz as the company CEO.

A growing number of seasoned executives is joining the company from Microsoft, Borland, IBM and CA, and the replacement interests all departments, from the marketing to the public relations.

The last two new entries are taking their places in EMEA and in India.

The first one is Jean-Pierre Brulard, the new General Manager for the Southern Europe.
Brulard comes from SAP, where he has been the Senior Vice President of the Business Objects for EMEA for seven years.
Brulard joins another former Business Objects executive: Maurizio Carli, the new EMEA General Manager that was appointed in December 2008.
Carli and Brulard worked together at Business Objects from 2002 to 2007, when Carli was the Business Objects General Manager for EMEA.

The second one is T. Srinivasan, the new Managing Director of India and the SAARC region.
Srinivasan comes from Oracle where he has been Vice President for the India region for less than one year.
Before that has been Executive Director at HP for one year.

Update: As an anonymous suggested in the comments, VMware also hired Elie Kanaan, who comes from Business Objects as well. 
Kanaan was the Vice President of Marketing for EMEA and at VMware replaces Reza Malekzadeh (who left in May) in the same role.
