Fall Channel Follies: Notable Executive Moves -- September

Distributors Like Brown

Cisco in early July began a series of changes to its top channel executive ranks, including the move of former distribution chief Dave O'Callghan to a new role driving Cisco's commercial market strategy. His replacement is Scott Brown, a well-traveled Cisco executive, and now Cisco's vice president, worldwide distribution, in charge of Cisco's $11 billion worldwide distribution business. Cisco's major distributors told CRN that Brown is an impressive appointment and would bring a lot to the role, and that they hope for deeper, tighter relationships between Cisco and its key distributor partners.
