Roese to lead EMC’s technology strategy to drive focus on Cloud, Big Data, and trusted IT

Cloud products and services provider, EMC Corporation, has named John Roese chief technology officer to shape the company’s technology strategy as it works to grow across Cloud, Big Data, and trusted IT.

Roese will report directly to EMC product operations and marketing executive vice-president, Jeremy Burton.

He replaces Jeff Nick, who held the role for eight years, and has now transitioned to a new chief technology officer role focusing on Big Data and emerging applications initiatives.

“Roese brings to EMC a unique blend of experience spanning the entire breadth of IT systems from silicon all the way up through networking, storage, servers, and virtualisation,” Burton said in a statement. “In addition, he’s directed product development in enterprise carrier and consumer markets.”

Burton also said that he sees Roese as a technologist, strategist, and general manager.

In commenting on his own appointment, Roese said that he looks forward to contributing to EMC’s next chapter for the global technology industry at a time of rapid evolution towards more agile, scalable, and user-centric computing.

Roese has over 20 years’ experience in IT industry leadership roles, having most recently worked at Huawei’s North American research and development (R&D) organisation. He has also served at Huawei’s Enterprise Global Competency Center as executive leader.

Before Huawei, he was Nortel chief technology officer, where he was in charge of research and development.

Roese has also formerly held roles at Broadcom Corp., Enterasys Networks, and Cabletron Systems.
