30 Notable IT Executive Moves: April 2012


Soni Jiandani

Cisco's lost a number of key executives over the past two years, and while most observers agree mighty Cisco has turned the corner on its internal troubles, that hasn't seemed to stanch the flow of major talents elsewhere. The latest big exit is Soni Jiandani, senior vice president of Cisco's SAVTG, confirmed with CRN earlier this spring by a Cisco spokesman. Jiandani may not have gone far, though; she's rumored to be at Insiemi, the software-defined networking startup in which Cisco has invested $100 million and is a potential "spin-in" play for the networking titan. It's not far-fetched; Jiandani was involved in a previous Cisco spin-in, Andiamo Systems.
