David Goulden, president of Dell EMC’s Infrastructure Solutions Group, has announced his intent to step down at the end of the fiscal year. Jeff Clarke now becomes Dell Inc.’s vice chairman, Products and Operations. Mr. Clarke will lead the company’s two product organizations: Client Solutions Group and Infrastructure Solutions Group. The new structure will enable the continuation of discrete strategies for the client and infrastructure markets while facilitating an integrated product vision from edge to core to cloud. He also will continue to lead the company’s global manufacturing, procurement and supply chain operations.
Michael Dell said, “David Goulden has played an integral role in successfully orchestrating our historic merger and building the world’s largest privately-controlled technology company. His deep experience as a CEO, CFO, sales and product development leader were instrumental in achieving this major milestone as we mark our one year anniversary as Dell Technologies. I thank David for his leadership and dedication, and congratulate Jeff as he brings his unique qualifications to this expanded role as we execute our long-term strategy focused squarely on our customers and the vast opportunities ahead.”
David Goulden said, “The decision to step down following Dell Technologies’ first year anniversary comes with a profound sense of pride for what we achieved in a very short amount of time. Under Michael’s leadership, and through the tireless work of our team members globally, we delivered on our commitment to our customers, exceeded our own expectations and stand poised as the essential infrastructure company to help customers realize their digital future. The transition of EMC into Dell EMC is complete and we’re executing in the market with great momentum. The time is right for a personal transition, and to bring the product groups together under Jeff’s most capable leadership.”
