Hits Keep Coming: 10 More Notable Cisco Executive Departures


In an undeniable "big get" for F5 Networks, Manny Rivelo, one of Cisco's best-known senior vice presidents, took over as head of F5's security and strategy teams in late October. Rumors about Rivelo's departure popped up earlier in the month, and by Halloween, F5 Networks had confirmed the 19-year Cisco veteran would come aboard as senior vice president, security and strategic solutions. At Cisco, Rivelo's most recent role had been senior vice president, engineering operations and systems. He joins F5 at a time of full-tilt growth, with the application delivery specialist having recently passed $1 billion in annual revenue.
