Jayshree Ullal named to Fortune Businessperson of the Year 2019 list November 25, 2019
Since arriving from giant rival Cisco in 2008, Ullal has turned Arista into a specialized market leader in Ethernet switches and open-source cloud software. In 2018, its operating margin reached 31.5%, eclipsing Cisco’s 28%. Total revenues are up 37% over the last three years, and even this past “down” quarter, revenues grew 16% year over year to $654 million. It’s impressive stuff from Ullal, an Indian-American born in London and raised in New Delhi.
