Former Moto CTO takes job with Cisco
Cisco confirmed late Tuesday that Padmasree Warrior would take a position with the company as its chief technology officer, just one day after she left Motorola following the exit of CEO Ed Zander. Warrior would be a good fit for Cisco as it moves into becoming more of a consumer company, but holds a good deal of enterprise and networking knowledge which is still very much the company's primary business.
"I am eager to bring to Cisco my technical expertise, over 20 years of experience in many aspects of the communications industry, a global bent of mind and an energizing leadership style," she said in a blog post announcing her hiring. She also said the company's drive to build new paradigms in communications drew her to the company. Warrior would report to CEO John Chambers.
