Five Companies That Dropped The Ball This Week


Cisco Global Enterprise Segment Chief Leaves Company

John McCool, a 17-year Cisco veteran who was heading up the networking market leader's Enterprise Networking Sales Architecture team, is leaving the company.

As senior vice president and chief technology officer of Cisco's Global Enterprise segment, McCool helped shape Cisco's sales strategy for its enterprise routing, switching and security portfolio.

McCool was previously a senior leader of Cisco's engineering organization, where he played a key role in developing Cisco's Catalyst 4500, Catalyst 6500 and Nexus 7000 switches.

Cisco said Tom Wilburn, former vice president of Unified Access Sales at Cisco and a key driver behind Cisco's $1.2 billion acquisition of Meraki, has been tapped to fill McCool's role.
