After an interview process lasting almost two months, today I am extremely thrilled to write that I will be taking on a significantly new role at Cisco. I will be focusing on massively scalable data centers for cloud service providers and large enterprise customers around the world.
My job will be to learn from these customers about the challenges they face, studying the trends, understand the changing requirements, and in turn helping Cisco development and sales teams to continue to be relevant and well positioned; delivering scalable solutions in the near term, and game changing innovation for the long term.
I am honored to be joining a team of really smart people with lots of experience in this space. I have a lot to learn in this role and thrilled at the chance to be academic again, studying uncharted waters with a team of great people.
I would like to thank Cisco and those I interviewed with for trusting me with this important responsibility. A tremendous amount of scrutiny was placed on this role and I am deeply honored to be chosen for it.
Most importantly, Thank You to my wonderful friends, colleagues, and Family. Your support and confidence makes all of this possible.
