Paul Maritz

After a long run at Microsoft, from 1986 to 2000, Paul Maritz finished up as the executive vice president of the company's platforms strategy and development group and sat on the company's executive management team where he was regarded as No. 3 in the corporate hierarchy. He is now chairman of VMware, having turned over the reins as CEO in September 2012.
