Dell has announced that Stéphane Paté will become the new general manager of Dell Germany, weeks after the company's CCO, Marius Haas, made the shock announcement that he is to step down in January.
Haas is credited with helping to establish Dell, EMC and VMware as a combined giant.
The vendor has responded by restructuring its leadership and unit organisation.
Its partner and commercial sales units have been rolled into one, headed by current global sales boss Bill Scannell.
As one of the new promotions, Paté is expected to take up his position at the beginning of the new fiscal year in early February.
He is currently SVP and general manager of enterprise sales, responsible for Dell Technologies' corporate customers in Germany.
Meanwhile, Doris Albiez, currently SVP and general manager commercial sales Germany is leaving the company after seven years.
The leadership shakeup comes after Dell posted a disappointing Q3 earnings report in November,
While sales for the quarter were better than expected, revenues of $22.9bn still missed Wall Street's forecasts of $23bn.
Stock fell more than five per cent in after hours, following the news.
Dell pointed the finger at the ongoing trade fracas with China, and Intel's CPU shortage.
