He came to VMware in 2010 as part of the GemStone acquisition after serving 4 years at GemStone as VP of Architecture. In his role here, Stolz leverages his expertise in targeting, developing and delivering innovative technology solutions to expand VMware’s Data Division within the financial services, travel, health care, insurance and other communities.

In this role, Stolz was responsible for the design and development of trading systems and trading support systems for Fixed Income, Currencies, Commodities, Derivatives, Liquidity and Risk Management.

    For those driving into the city the DVP is closed due to a collision. Best to use Avenue, Bathurst or the Allen to get here. The intersection is Bathhurst and Bloor.
