Dell, EMC Name Executive Leadership for Merged Company

Dell Inc. named new executives to its marketing, products and supply chain leadership ahead of a planned $67 billion merger with EMC Corp., according to filings by the companies.

While the positions cover new areas for the combined company, the new roles aren’t major shifts for many of the executives, according to employee memos made public in filings Tuesday. The deal between computer maker Dell and data-storage provider EMC, the biggest-ever technology merger, is scheduled to be completed later this year.

The following executives have new assignments:

  • Jeremy Burton, EMC’s president for products and marketing, will become chief marketing officer of the combined company and will oversee brand, marketing and communications. Karen Quintos, currently Dell’s CMO, will be chief customer officer.
  • EMC’s David Goulden will be president of the Enterprise Systems Group, which includes servers and storage. Bill Scannell, also of EMC, will report to Goulden.
  • Dell’s Marius Haas, who is the chief commercial officer, will be responsible for "global go-to-market organization serving commercial customers."

The changes, first reported by Re/code, also will include the formation of a new executive management group that will include senior executives from Dell and EMC, including Pat Gelsinger, chief executive officer of EMC unit VMware Inc., and Rodney Rogers, CEO of Dell’s Virtustream.

“The transaction is on schedule under the original timetable and the original terms,” Dell said in the filing. “Our new company will have the most experienced, most knowledgeable and most capable leadership team in our industry, bar none.”

(A previous version of the story corrected the composition of the management group in the last paragraph.)
