Felix is a consummate IT professional and passionate VMware evangelist. Felix’s contributions are felt far and wide be it internally, customer facing or partner facing. Since his promotion into the Staff Global Solutions Consultant role, he’s been able to extend his reach to support global organizations, being deeply integrated into our most strategic and complex accounts. He’s thought of as the ‘SE of the SEs’, assisting with internal enablement/mentoring of the SE team, works with trainings supporting our partners and travels to get in front of our more progressive customers.
On the customer side, he regularly works with his peers and helps drive large opportunities or more elaborate ones with customers moving towards integrations across our extensive stack as well as partner solutions. Whether it be to technical validate and prove out solutions, deliver SDDC based POCs (both in customer environments as well as full reproduction of complex solutions/integrations specific to his customer in his home lab), to hosting customers at EBCs and delivering the VMware vision to executives and engineers. In addition to everything he does “in the office”, he’s a regular participant in local customer events, getting out there to talk one to many, and one on one, to help understand the customer’s perspective as well as provide guidance on how a partnership with VMware can help solve real world challenges they face. It’s in this capacity that he’s able to cast his net far and wide and be able to capture mindshare from our customers and share that internally with his team as well as rolls up the feedback to leadership and various business units.
