As Cisco continues to progress its strategy in the consumer market, we are evolving our organizational structure to align our investments across the business. As such, the Consumer Business Group will now report to Marthin De Beer, who will remain responsible for leading the TelePresence and Emerging Technologies groups. This will drive alignment, create efficiencies and consolidate the consumer business organizations.
A 16 year Cisco veteran, Marthin is a natural leader and uniquely skilled in driving growth into new areas of our business.
Marthin will co-chair the Consumer Council with Ned Hooper. Jonathan Kaplan, SVP and GM of Cisco Consumer Products, will be leaving the company to pursue other career opportunities. The leadership team thanks Jonathan for his valuable contributions to the business over the last two years.
