No, we’re not stalking you--well, maybe a little--but in an effort to share what our partners are doing, we scoured the Web to find your blogs, the videos you’re posting, your new initiatives, charities you support, awards, and your contests.

CRN recently sat down with Cisco Chairman CEO John Chambers, SVP Channels Edison Peres, SVP Services Karl Meulema, SVP Small Business Ian Pennell and numerous other executives across Cisco to create a remarkable set of feature stories published in this month’s print edition.
