Cisco Honored with Secretary of State’s 2010 Award for Corporate Excellence
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Cisco along with Denimatrix and Mars, Inc., with the 12th annual Award for Corporate Excellence (ACE). The ACE is given to U.S. businesses that exhibit good corporate citizenship, promote innovation, and advance democratic principles around the world. Cisco received the prestigious ACE for helping to connect the Israeli and Palestinian economies and people, and engaging in several partnerships and initiatives to enhance technical capacity, connectivity, education, and opportunities for women and youth in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.
Secretary Clinton invited Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers “to accept this ACE Award for your efforts to create jobs, improve lives, and lay the groundwork for lasting peace.”
