Today, at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers joined Goldman Sachs CEO and Chairman Lloyd Blankfein and Dow Chemical Company President, Chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris on a panel discussion moderated by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. The title of the panel was “Business by Design: Growth and Opportunity.” (An edited portion of the panel will air on CNN soon…watch this space for the air date).
Zakaria said that he was an optimist overall when it came to the United States and our prospects for the future. He spoke about the economic troubles the U.S. has had over the past decades and how we have consistently overcome them. The trouble with this recovery and economy, he said, is that it is taking jobs a lot longer to come back than what has been historically ordinary.
All of the speakers agreed (generally) that there was optimism to be had in the United States economy, regardless of who is elected President in November. All of them also agreed that government and business have to partner together to help solve our nation’s problems and take advantage of our many assets. Blankfein said that many of our problems are self-inflicted and could easily be resolved, such as having a budget for the country.

After 12 years of dedicated service, Jerry Yang has chosen to retire from Cisco’s Board of Directors to more fully pursue new personal and business interests.
Jerry has been an active member of our Board of Directors since July 2000. As the co-founder of Yahoo! Inc. and with his background in information technology and technology development, Jerry’s strategy and leadership skills on the board have been invaluable. Jerry will continue to serve as a director until Cisco’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders on November 15, 2012.
During Jerry’s tenure on the board, Cisco has more than doubled annual revenue from approximately $19 billion to $46 billion, tripled profits from $2.7 billion to $8.0 billion, and grown headcount from 34,000 to approximately 67,000 employees. On behalf of Cisco’s Board of Directors, we are extremely proud to have worked with Jerry on these accomplishments, and he will certainly be missed by me, our fellow board members and our entire company.
Thank you for your great service to Cisco, Jerry.

And isn’t nice to know that our partners share something in common with the Olympic champions. Like the athletes, our partners dream big, give it their all, and work hard to hone their skills—both as technology providers and trusted business advisers. Read More »
