Director of Sales, Public Sector West
Christy Cook looks after the Cisco Meraki field sales team for the western US public sector organization. A Merakian for 5 years, Christy helps her team to best utilize their strengths and build new skill sets while helping SLED customers simplify their networks with the intuitive, analytics-based Cisco Meraki cloud-managed architecture.
Christy began her career in technology at Technology for Education, a SLED-focused Cisco partner based in Texas, where she spent 4 years selling turnkey technology solutions to IT Directors and CIO’s in the K-12 space. Prior to entering the world of networking, Christy spent 4 years in the facilities services industry, providing security solutions to commercial high-rise facilities throughout Texas.
The common thread of security woven through Christy’s career trajectory has fueled a passion for safety in schools and communities, and as such, she is a fierce advocate for the proliferation of Meraki MV in the SLED space.
In her spare time, Christy chases after her 4-month old puppy Tino, hosts dinner gatherings for friends and family at home, spends as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors, and enjoys the staples of Texas – queso, margaritas and live music – with just about anyone who will join in on the fun.
Christy can be spotted throwing dice at the craps tables in Las Vegas during GSX, and she is always happy to show newbies the ropes.
