Broadcom’s Software President Departs, Duties Shift to CEO


Broadcom is buying software company VMware in one of the biggest takeover deals so far this year.



The president of

Broadcom Inc.’s

AVGO -3.17%

software business is leaving the company for another job, with his responsibilities shifting to Chief Executive

Hock Tan,

according to a regulatory filing.

Thomas Krause

is leaving to become CEO of the combined company of

Citrix Systems Inc.

CTXS 1.54%

and Tibco Software. Vista Equity Partners and Evergreen Coast Capital Corp., the private-equity arm of Elliott Management Corp., in January agreed to buy Citrix for $16.5 billion, including debt, to combine the cloud-computing company with Tibco.

Broadcom said earlier Monday that Mr. Krause would formally depart the company on July 15.

Mr. Krause’s position as president of Broadcom’s software group will be eliminated, with those responsibilities now delegated to Mr. Tan, Broadcom said.

The filing noted that Mr. Krause’s resignation isn’t the result of any disagreement with the company or management, and that he would assist in the transition.

Mr. Tan’s added responsibilities come as Broadcom is in the process of buying the software company

VMware Inc.

VMW -1.14%

for $61 billion, in one of the biggest takeover deals this year. Mr. Tan is betting that bundling various technology offerings that are essential to large corporate customers can yield outsize returns.

Broadcom also on Monday said its chief operating officer,

Charlie Kawwas,

is now the president of the Semiconductor Solutions Group, the company’s semiconductor portfolio. He will remain responsible for global operations and sales in both the semiconductor and brocade storage networking business segments.
