Duncan Hewett new SVP, AP, at VMware


VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, has announced the appointment of Duncan Hewett to the post of senior vice-president and general manager to lead the VMware Asia Pacific & Japan business, effective 9 August. 

Maurizio Carli, executive vice-president, Worldwide Sales, VMware, said “Duncan is taking over at an exciting stage of VMware’s growth in APJ, which is one of our best-performing geographical regions. A substantial opportunity lies ahead for VMware in this part of the world. Duncan’s rich experience in the software industry – as well as his deep understanding of the Asia Pacific markets – will help us take our APJ business to the next level.”

Hewett has nearly 30 years of emerging market experience; most focused on Asia Pacific.

He joins VMware from IBM, where he most recently served as vice-president for IBM Software for Asia Pacific, leading a team of over 1800 people across sales, acquisition integration, subscription, and support, software support and software services. 

At IBM, Hewett has played roles leading a team of 400 enterprise sales specialists spanning eight growth markets including South East Asia, India and South Asia, Greater China, South Korea, Australia/New Zealand, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Hewett began his career at IBM in 1987, working on large water-cooled mainframe systems, and eventually moved into the IBM’s Data Systems division of customer service where he held some roles in engineering, finance, marketing and services management.

“I am delighted to take on the challenge of driving continued VMware growth in APJ,” said Hewett. “Our top priority will be to help our customers accelerate enterprise digital transformation. We are well positioned in the region, and I am looking forward to leading the team to new heights in a region now regarded as one of VMware’s growth engines.”
