Parting is such sweet sorrow…

Its almost a cliche thing to say, but it is with truly mixed emotions that I announce I am moving from VMware to LinkedIn in this month to take on the role as the Senior Product Manager for LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions in Asia Pacific.

I have had an amazing 2 years at VMware, and have been honored to have partaken in the companies transition from server virtualization to the full Software Defined Datacenter. The highlight though of being a part of this journey was the people I had the pleasure of working with. They made every day an absolute delight to come to work with, and always kept us laughing while maintaining the ultimate professionalism in execution, I will miss you all.

The move to LinkedIn is definitely an exciting one for me, it’s a company I have envied for a long time, and its mission one that I find very compelling, “Connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful”. The opportunity to work with the talent recruitment community is one that is both daunting and exciting, I am sure there is a lot I can learn in this space. Ultimately I am excited about what we can do to help open more opportunities for professionals. The personal development of others has always been a passion of mine, helping people overcome challenges and building skills in their professional careers. To be able to do this one such a grand scale will be amazing…

I am looking forward to sharing with you all the adventures I have in moving in to this great new opportunity.

  1. Great write up and I’ve always loved your work morale. You’re one of few people I know that puts his heart into the work you do. My professional career taught me “hire for attitude and train for skills” and you are certainly an embodiment of that positive attitude that every employer should seek in his/her employees. I wish you much success in this new professional adventure!

  2. Thanks mate, really appreciate the kind sentiments! Its the environment and work culture coupled with the people where I get my energy from. Im looking forward to seeing how I can help make this possible for others in the new gig too… take care mate!

  3. Well done mate and good luck in your next role. A great company and one I think deserves you and your work ethic. Lastly…..can you have a look for me too please!
