Broadcom reorganized after completing its $69 billion acquisition of VMware on November 22.

Broadcom CEO Hock Tan recently informed employees via email that VMware would now be divided into four divisions: VMware Cloud Foundation, Tanzu cloud applications, Software-Defined Edge, and Application Networking and Security.

Sanjay Uppal, a vice president and general manager, will lead the Software-Defined Edge division. Tan also named other top executives who will report to Uppal and help lead the division in an email obtained by Business Insider.

Broadcom did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Broadcom laid off workers on Monday after the deal closed, as previously reported by BI. Prior to that, VMware had already begun to reduce its workforce.
