Mairead Craven

Global Operations Manager

Talent Acquisition

I’ve worked in technology for over 25 years, though wouldn’t necessarily say I’m a techie. I joined Cisco in Amsterdam in 1996. I’ve held roles across many functions such as Customer Services, Sales Operations, IT Operations and now Talent Acquisition. I’ve led global programs, projects and operational teams and implemented multiple change initiatives throughout my career, all whilst staying with Cisco.

The experience, education and growth opportunities I’ve had, coupled with a crew of multicultural, open and passionate colleagues is what keeps me motivated and charged every day for life @ Cisco.

Appreciate cooking [eat it], jogging [run it off] and chilling with books, TV and family.
