Dare to Be EPIC2: Anne Daly

At VMware, our EPIC2 values – Execution, Passion, Integrity, Customers and Community – represent what we stand for as individuals and as a community. They dare us to reach our goals and drive us to create transformative innovations that are shaping the way businesses work. The annual EPIC2Achievement Awards is one way we recognize members of our workforce who bring each of our values to life in ways that inspire our global community to flourish. Learn how 2016 EPIC2 Achievement Award Winner, Anne Daly, is making a global impact through her work.




Anne Daly

Indirect Tax Manager

Cork, Ireland


VMware value that means the most to you: Passion. I think you need passion to excel at what you do – question why we do things the way we do and see if there is a better solution for our customers. To thrive at your job, I think you need to have passion – you need to like what you do. And to work with other people, you need to show your enthusiasm.

Hobbies: I love cycling, hiking and running. Going to the cinema with friends and family is fun too!

People might not know: 

There is not probably not much people don’t know about me as I am a bit of an open book. 

  • I love to travel – I’ve been all over Europe, traveled to Australia, Japan, Thailand and many parts of the United States. 
  • I’m no chef but I like eating out and trying new cuisines.
  • I grew up on a dairy farm in Ireland and know how to drive a tractor!
  • I grew up in a large family. I have 8 siblings – 2 brothers and 6 sisters.

Inspiration:I love the office environment at VMware and the people that I work with – they’re the friendliest. It is rewarding going into the office every day and working with them. I’m constantly being challenged, and for a young person, it’s great to have a job like that. There is always something new and innovative going on and there are great opportunities, initiatives, etc. to be had at VMware.  

Guilty Pleasure: Shopping. I could shop until I drop.

Career Ambition: My ambition is to progress and diversify through new experiences at VMware. I work in Indirect taxes, but I would love to broaden my knowledge to different aspects of finance.

Occupation If Money Wasn’t an Obstacle: Own my own clothes boutique  

#1 Passion: I’d say cycling. I’ve done a lot of races including the famous Ring of Kerry cycle, so yes, cycling would probably be one of my top passions.

Biggest Takeaway from receiving the 2016 EPIC2Achievement Award:  The biggest insight was seeing what a great team there is at VMware and in particular in Cork. The day Betsy Sutter, VMware’s SVP and Chief People Officer, announced the 2016 EPIC2 Achievement Award winners was such a memorable day in my life – I was in awe by the thoughtful messages I received from well-wishers. I feel privileged to be working for such a great organization.
