Hit Parade: 15 Notable Cisco Executive Departures


Brian Schipper

When Cisco launched its Voluntary Early Retirement Program earlier this year, it was Brian Schipper, then Cisco's senior vice president, human resources, who laid out the reasons why. The last program, in 2009, was "very well-received by employees, and requests have been made to consider offering a similar opportunity now," Schipper wrote in a letter to eligible Cisco employees in April.

Schipper has since left Cisco as well, and is now head of global human resources for Groupon.
