The chief executive officer of American tech company Dell has described the ‘fun’ he is having as he prepares for what is billed to be the world’s biggest technology merger.
Michael Dell spoke candidly to Gulf Business about his excitement ahead of his company’s $67bn acquisition of storage company EMC, which is likely to be finalised next year.
The Texan, who founded the company 32 years ago in his college dormitory room, also trounced any rumours of possible job losses as a ‘hysterical reaction’.
Speaking during Dell World, held in Austin, Texas, he said: “If you told me I couldn’t do this, I’d be depressed. I like doing the stuff. I am tremendously excited about the role that technology has in changing the world and when I see what is going on in healthcare and in cancer research and in education and in the advancement in societies.”
