Citrix shakes up their XenDesktop exec team, GM Raj Dhingra is out

Late last week we learned there will be some management changes at the VP / General Manager level of Citrix's XenDesktop group. We don't know whether this is due to a lack of performance or failure of any particular strategy.

Late last week we learned there will be some management changes at the VP / General Manager level of Citrix's XenDesktop group. We don't know whether this is due to a lack of performance or failure of any particular strategy. Citrix's own statement puts a happy spin on it: "We have expanded our leadership team in the Desktop Division to build on our success last year, and position us to scale our current business and focus on new opportunities in the emerging cloud market."

The specifics:

Amitabh Sinha:

VP of XenDesktop Product Management --> GM for the new Enterprise Desktops and Applications group

Sumit Dhawan:

VP of Product Marketing for XenDesktop --> GM for the Receiver and End User Services group

Bill Burley:

VP & GM of XenApp --> GM for our new Cloud Applications Delivery group.

Raj Dhingra:

GM for XenDesktop --> leaving the company.

It appears that Gordon Payne will still be the SVP of the entire desktop devision.

It looks like Citrix has split the group into Windows apps, cloud apps, and end-user devices and clients? I don't really know too much more about this. What do you think?
