VKernel appoints Gene Fay as Vice President of Sales

The startup VKernel just appointed Gene Fay as its new VP of Sales

Prior to joining VKernel, Fay was vice president of worldwide sales and global alliances for the security information and event management (SIEM) business unit of RSA, the Security Division of EMC. He joined EMC after the company acquired Network Intelligence where he was vice president of business development. In that position, Fay provided the sales leadership and grew the EMC SIEM business by over 40 percent in 2007 after the acquisition. Fay has also held other management positions with EMC, Avid Sports (founder), and Avid Technology…

It’s interesting that Fay preferred to join a small startup shaping its offering around VMware rather than moving to VMware itself, where maybe could be easier to go because of the common parent company EMC.
