Sr. Director of Marketing, VMware by Broadcom

Karina Dahlke is the Sr. Director of Marketing for the Software-Defined Edge division of VMware by Broadcom and is responsible for GTM activities for Telco (Core & RAN), SASE and Edge products. Her job is to listen to a bunch of technical gibberish and turn it into coherent English sentences.  Her team focuses on helping telecommunications and enterprise customers with their digital transformation to create new services using technologies such as Kubernetes, virtualization, AI, and analytics. She’s held product, sales, and marketing leadership positions in many startups and large Silicon Valley companies alike and is on the Advisory Board of 5G Open Innovation Lab and a contributing member of the Next Generation Mobile Networks Alliance. One of her favorite things to do is to mentor students at local schools and Howard University.
