executives are leaving the enterprise software company that

Broadcom Inc.

AVGO 1.73%

wants to acquire for $61 billion, VMware’s leader told staff in a memo on Monday.

said the senior vice presidents of cloud infrastructure, Mark Lohmeyer; applications and management business,

; and networking and advanced security,

Tom Gillis,

are leaving, according to the memo, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Broadcom in May said it planned to buy VMware as part of a wider push by the chip company into software. VMware would nearly triple the size of Broadcom’s software division and account for nearly 49% of the company’s revenue. The deal is still awaiting regulatory approval.

“As it happens during such transition, we find some executives decide to move on,” according to the internal memo. “All three have held leadership positions over several years and drove much impact across the business.”

Spokespeople for VMware didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
