Cisco Executives, Exit This Way
Cisco is in the midst of a company-wide restructuring as it looks to remove $1 billion in expenses by the end of its fiscal 2012, and part of that restructuring is a plan to layoff 6,500 full time Cisco employees. Cisco confirmed initial details of the layoff -- which includes about 2,100 early retirees -- in mid-July, and began notifying many of the affected employees during the first week of August.
It's worth noting, however, that major executive talents have been exiting Cisco at a steady clip for nearly a year. Here's a look at 15 of the most notable Cisco executive departures -- already happened, or pending -- including not only top senior vice presidents but notable channel- and market segment-specific executives, too.
