Dell’s Jim DeFoe On Retirement, Michael Dell And Advice To Partners

Jim DeFoe, Senior Vice President of Global Distribution, recently announced his retirement from Dell Technologies after 23 years. Hear from Michael Dell, Sonia St. Charles and channel partners about the impact Jim has made in his tenure.

“Jim played a key role in shaping Dell’s channel and working through all the problem areas in the program’s early years while Dell was learning how to be channel-friendly,” said Sonia St. Charles, CEO of Davenport Group. “During those formative years, he definitely earned his stripes as he mediated all types of conflicts between the partner community and Dell’s field team, as well as encouraging Dell’s leadership team to consider the partner’s feedback regarding the program design. Jim is a super nice guy that knows how to navigate within the vast Dell organization and get things done. He is definitely going to be missed.”
