VMware CTO and senior VP of R&D Steve Herrod is leaving after 11 years with the company to become managing director of General Catalyst, the VC operation based out of Cambridge, Massachusetts and Palo Alto, California, where he hopes to put his team-building skills to work to extend it into a “broader technology domain.”
He says his “primary focus will be finding, supporting and developing great technical entrepreneurs as they build the products and companies that they’ve always dreamt of building. These companies will bring the same tremendous energy, creativity, and innovation to these and other challenges, just as VMware has for so many years.”
He will apparently remain a technical advisor to VMware.
