TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Lou Serlenga

Senior Vice President, Americas, Sales
Aruba Networks

Aruba, the Hewlett Packard Enterprise-owned vendor of data networking, has gone all in on the Internet of Things. As senior vice president of sales in the Americas, Serlenga has led the charge for the company’s four-step approach to securing connectivity in the age of IoT — and that approach is coming of age in the era of 5G technology. “The whole IoT story needs a new platform, and that’s 5G, and for us at Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Aruba, we have that platform,” Morten Illum, a vice president with Aruba, said during an HPE conference in January. “We have that underlying infrastructure that really sets apart and enables that whole infrastructure.” For Serlenga, the future is a blank slate.
