Craig Huitema began his career in technology as a Network Engineer at a large aerospace company. It was there that he became a customer, and fan, of Cisco. He later joined Cisco as a Systems Engineer and held his CCIE for over a decade. However, that certification, and many of the associated technical brain cells, expired several years ago. He held roles of increasing responsibility within the Cisco Sales organization, including Director of Systems Engineering, responsible for Enterprise customers across the Western United States. Craig is now Director of Marketing for Data Center and Cloud Networking. He wonders why these bio’s are written in third person since the writer and the subject are inevitably the same. In any case, “he” will conform to the implicit rule.
