Padmasree Warrior/Pankaj Patel

Like HP, Cisco is also in the midst of an ongoing wave of executive changes, following a year's worth of top talent departures from the company. The biggest move made at Cisco yet in 2012 is the promotion of Padmasree Warrior (left) to Cisco's chief strategy and technology officer. Warrior's new role moved her out of running Cisco's engineering organization, now solely led by Pankaj Patel.
