Goulden FINALLY bags EMC's storage CEO spot

But who'll inherit the whole shebang from Joe Tucci?

SANS - Survey on application security programs

David Goulden has got the EMC storage CEO job title at last, putting him on a level footing with Paul Maritz, platform-as-a-service outfit Pivotal's CEO, and Pat Gelsinger, VMware's CEO.

We're told the 54 year old Goulden is an 11-year EMC veteran, who was EMC’s chief financial officer for seven years and then, when Gelsinger went off to run VMware in July 2012, became EMC president and chief operating officer, with "responsibility for EMC’s Information Infrastructure Business Units, Sales and Customer Operations, Services, Marketing and G&A functions since July 2012", according to the bumf.

Eighteen months later he's shown chairman and EMC Corporation CEO Joe Tucci that he has the mettle to be a CEO and gets the slot, formally becoming CEO of EMC Information Infrastructure, the core storage business in the EMC federation.

It's been one of the most public and longest drawn-out succession processes in the storage industry, with overall EMC head honcho Joe Tucci deferring his retirement back in 2012, while his lieutenants strain at the leash.

Now there are three front-running heirs-apparent to Don Joey - and twelve months or more in which the three can do their separate things and show who is best suited to being the next EMC emperor; vision king Paul Maritz, product pusher Gelsinger, or numbers whiz Goulden. ®
