VMware Welcomes Simon Powell to Lead Partner Organization in Canada!

At VMware Canada, we’re committed to our partners, and our partnerships continue to remain paramount to our success. Much of that success means strong leadership, and we are so pleased to officially recognize Simon Powell as Director, Canada Partner Organization. Effective Dec. 1, Simon resumed the position previously held by Tara Fine, who is now Vice President, Americas Partner Organization.

As a key leader of the Canadian Leadership team, Simon has successfully led VMware Canada’s partner team and channel partners through transformation over the past few months, transitioning from supporting VMware Corporate Resellers to taking on this expanded role.

Over the past four years that Simon has been with VMware, he has seen first-hand how our partners influence our business’s transformation and has consistently worked to communicate with partners and simplify our partner experience. Before joining VMware, Simon held national roles with Dell EMC and Gartner.

In this new role, Simon is committed to being our partners’ biggest advocate. He is a big-picture thinker and is optimistic for our partners’ future, both short and long term. As we move from cloud chaos to cloud smart, our partners play an integral role in helping our customers transform and elevating our multi-cloud story in the market.

Simon holds professional designation by the Channel Chiefs Council of Canada (C4), and Harvard Leadership Specialization.

Please join us in congratulating Simon and be on the lookout for more as he continues to lead Canada’s Partner Organization.
