Denny Trevett

Vice President

Partner Model, Customer Experience

With more than 20 years of Cisco sales and channels experience, Denny leads the new CX Partner Model organization. He and his team are tasked to create the best scalable model — a combination of portfolio + segmentation + incentives + programs — to help partners drive profitable growth and accelerate customers through their lifecycle. Denny’s team collaborates with the Global Partner Organization (GPO), Regional Partner Sales Organizations, and other CX teams (such as Operations, Regional, and Platforms) to ensure customers have a consistent CX experience with our partners.

Prior to this role and for the past five years, Denny was a Vice President in GPO, working closely with Cisco’s most strategic ISV and technology partners to help accelerate our customers' digital journeys. He was responsible for optimizing Cisco's ecosystem expansion, managing many of Cisco's global ecosystem partnerships, and accelerating the amplification and sales of all products and solutions through our partner ecosystem.

Before GPO, Denny spent two years in Worldwide Sales Strategy and Planning focused on developing and selling Cisco's ISV strategy and six years in US and Canada Channels building and scaling Cisco’s initial moves into new markets for voice, video, and datacenter. He also spent eight years in various sales specialist and leadership roles across enterprise, commercial, and public sector.

Denny joined Cisco with the acquisition of Netsys Technologies. Prior to Netsys, he held sales and sales leadership roles for a reseller, as well as Computer Associates (through the Legent acquisition).

Denny has a BS in Mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He lives in the Boston area with his wife and two daughters.
