It is with great pleasure I introduce you to a senior thought-leader from Cisco, Rick Geiger.
As some of you will know, Rick Geiger has been with Cisco for 7 years, and was formerly Director of Engineering in Cisco’s Physical Security Business Unit (now part of the IOTG, or Internet of Things Group)
Prior to joining Cisco, Rick was VP Engineering for GE Security in Physical Security, video surveillance and access control, so he knows a thing or two about Security. Rick has in depth experience in the global utility market with more than 10 years as VP Engineering and Chief Technical Officer for Itron. Itron is a key partner of Cisco, as many of you will know.
Presently Rick is Executive Director for Utilities and Smart Grid, on Cisco’s Value Acceleration team (formerly Business Transformation Team), and Rick and the Smart Grid Vertical Team serve the Americas Utility markets with Secure, Resilient and Scalable network solutions for smart grid, advanced metering, distribution automation, utility telemetry and energy management. Despite his USA remit, Rick is often asked to represent Cisco internationally.
Rick is also on the Gridwise Alliance Board of Directors and an IEEE Senior Member and Member of the Power and Energy Society. You can view Rick’s Biography here, along with his posts, including those on the Internet of Everything Blog: The Impact of Distributed Generation. Feel free to contact Rick by commenting on his future posts and engaging in the conversation!
