Cisco has announced the departure of Don Listwin, executive vice president of Cisco’s corporate marketing, and consumer lines of business. Listwin is taking over as CEO of a Cisco ecosystem partner in which Cisco holds a minority investment.
“Throughout his career at Cisco, Don has demonstrated vision, leadership and passion,” said John Chambers, CEO of Cisco. “I wish him continued success, especially in driving up the stock price of our investment.”
Kevin Kennedy, senior vice president, Service Provider Line of Business, will join the board of directors of Listwin’s company.
“This really demonstrates the value of an ecosystem,” said Chambers.
