NComputing Hires Former Citrix VP As New CEO

Low-price computing start-up NComputing has named former Citrix executive Raj Dhingra as its new chief executive officer.

Based on desktop virtualisation, NComputing offers technology that reduces costs and improves manageability.

Raj Dhingra was previously the general manager and group vice president of the desktop virtualization business at Citrix and will replace Stephen Dukker as the new CEO. Dukker, who was the founding CEO of eMachines, will remain as the company’s chairman.

NComputing, which caters to schools and small and medium sized organisations, offers technology that makes it easier for individuals to get access to computers without incurring much costs.

The company claims to have 20 million daily users in over 140 countries worldwide. NComputing said that Dhingra will be responsible for expanding the company’s global business line, focusing mainly on enterprise and SMB markets, expanding its hold on the education market and boost its desktop virtualisation solutions.

“Desktop Virtualisation is one of the fastest growing and dynamic markets in the industry today. We believe the traditional PC replacement market is just the tip of the iceberg for virtual desktops, and that the true market potential is 10-100x larger,” Dhingra said in a statement.

“NComputing is uniquely positioned to move from market disrupter to market leader by taking a prime role in enabling a larger market opportunity through industry collaboration and technology integration,” he added.
