Announcement: VMware CIO Bask Iyer is Zoom’s New Advisor
Today we at Zoom are happy to announce that Bask Iyer, CIO of VMware, is now a business advisor to our leadership team. Iyer will help Zoom scale our enterprise services with his extensive knowledge of the collaboration needs of large companies.
Bask Iyer (above) serves as VMware’s senior vice president and CIO, leading the company’s global information and technology organization. A respected industry veteran, Iyer brings more than 25 years of experience in traditional Fortune 100 manufacturing companies and high technology firms such as Juniper Networks, Honeywell, and GlaxoSmithKline Beecham.
We talked to both Iyer and Zoom’s Founder and CEO Eric S. Yuan about the new appointment.
“I am proud to join the Zoom team as an advisor,” said Iyer. “I know how important collaboration tools are to enterprise corporations and how difficult it is to build a truly great video conferencing platform, even though the market is crowded with imitators. I had been in constant search of a video conferencing solution that actually works, and had little luck before I found Zoom. I look forward to helping Zoom take it to the next stage of growth.”
“Bask has actually been providing valuable advice to me as a friend for some time now, so I’m pleased we can make it official with an advisory position,” said Yuan. “Bask’s background as an enterprise CIO working in cloud virtualization, networking, and virtualized applications allows him to provide us with insights on what enterprise companies need in their collaboration tools, helping us to create the best user experiences for these customers and grow Zoom’s market presence.”
