Hits Keep Coming: 10 More Notable Cisco Executive Departures


Big shift in Cisco's security business: Cisco confirmed Tom Gillis, vice president of Cisco's security technologies business unit, had left Cisco this fall to work for an as-yet-unnamed startup. Gillis' replacement is Chris Young, whose appointment is especially notable in that, for the first time, Cisco has a senior vice president-level position heading its security engineering functions. Young's full title is senior vice president, security technologies business unit, following well-regarded stints in similar roles at VMware and RSA.
