HPE Partners See New CEO Neri Accelerating 'Next' Era of Channel Sales Growth - From CRN

An article in yesterday's CRN (1 Feb 2018), by Steven Burke, was entitled, "HPE Partners See New CEO Neri Accelerating 'Next' Era of Channel Sales Growth." According to Burke, "Hewlett Packard Enterprise partners said new HPE CEO Antonio Neri is set to drive what they are calling the 'Next' era of channel sales growth."


The article goes on to quote Meg Whitman, "who officially steps down as CEO today, she ended her six years at the helm by singling out Neri's 'unparalleled passion' for the company and dedication to customers." Whitman tweeted: "I’m absolutely confident that he is exactly what the company needs to take its next step... Good luck, my friend!"


Burke also quotes several HPE partners, including:

  • Raymond Tuchman, CEO of Experis Technology Group: "We are very excited about the future with Antonio taking over as CEO. He understands both the power of technology and the channel. He has done a great job architecting the software defined road map with great acquisitions." As an example, according to Burke, "Experis is seeing exceptional sales of sales of the Simplivity hyperconverged product line which HPE acquired one year ago for $650 million as a result of Neri's leadership."
  • Kelly Ireland, founder and CEO of CB Technologies: "Antonio's knowledge and interaction with the channel and partner ecosystem is going to allow us to stay ahead in this ever changing industry of providing heterogenous solutions."

Neri is quoted by Burke as having said: "At HPE, we will be focused on powering them by building the world’s best infrastructure solutions – intelligent, state-of-the-art technologies and services that provide them with the tools to harvest, analyze and store critical data from across their business. By quickly turning data into insights, enterprises will drive new business models, create new customer and workplace experiences, and increase operational efficiency."
