Former VMware CTO Now a General Catalyst for Investing in Enterprise Technology

Steve Herrod worked at virtualization innovator VMware from 2001 until 2013, with the last five years of his tenure there as CTO and senior vice president of R&D. Since leaving VMware in February 2013, Herrod has been a managing director at venture capital firm General Catalyst Partners looking for the next big enterprise technology innovation.

“I’m still a technologist first and an investor second,” Herrod told eWEEK. “I’m spending a lot of time finding the groups that are tackling the really thorny problems in enterprise infrastructure.”
