Jim Merritt, Dell's VP for large enterprise in Asia Pacific and Japan, said, ''Garde's direction at the helm has been a key factor to ensure Dell's cross-BU success in India, driving it towards its stated leadership goal in India and we are glad he will continue to lead the India growth story while working on the important new role of driving Dell services growth and integration with Dell offerings across the Asia Pacific and Japan market.''

Through Dell services (erstwhile Perot Systems), the company is looking to redefine itself as a solutions provider and redefine the ecosystem of IT services.

The third appointment is of Suraj Sabberwal. As per Dell's strategy to drive the LE business across Asia Pacific and Japan, the global accounts business will move out of LE to be a part of the larger Asia Pacific and Japan Global 500 team and will continue to be headed by Sabberwal.
