Dell Technologies Senior VP Stella Low, one of the most influential leaders within the technology giant, has resigned from the company, according to The Holmes Report. Low, who oversaw global communications, played a key role in shaping worldwide market messages -- especially during the massive Dell-EMC merger of 2016.

Updated April 29, 2019: Stella Low joins Cisco Systems.

Original December 6, 2018 Report: Low was VP of global communications at EMC ahead of the M&A deal. When the two companies came together, she and her team ensured Dell EMC had clear, continuous communications with the media -- including the channel media. She also played key roles in shaping the former EMC World conferences, and the current Dell Technologies World conference.

Low told  The Holmes Report that she will be taking a “short break” to spend time with family before deciding on her next move, according to a December 4 report. Her successor has not yet been named. Dell CMO Allison Dew applauded Low's work in the report.
