Vice President, Worldwide Sales

Mass-Scale Infrastructure Group

Shaun McCarthy is Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Cisco’s Mass- Scale Infrastructure Group. In his role, Shaun leads a global organization of sales and technology specialists that wake up every day focused on leading customers through network transformations. At Cisco, specialist sales teams are comprised of the top thought leaders in the company. They bring insight to customers, partners and cross functional peers. Shaun is a results-oriented sales leader with a passion for building world class teams and turning around organizations. He has a strong technical background and a proven ability to develop long term relationships with Tier 1 Service Providers, MSOs, and Cloud/Hyperscale companies. He prides himself on being a collaborative, results-oriented leader who knows how to keep things fun, take the complexity out of problems and drive toward creative solutions. He lives by three rules in his life and career, and tries to instill the same mentality in his team: • Listen, learn and form your own opinion on things • Figure out what you are good at and use it to develop your personal brand • Always be customer obsessed and live by the 99-year plan Shaun thinks it’s an exciting time to be in the telco industry because traditional networks are being disrupted, new business models are emerging and 5G is playing a role in everything. A colleague of his introduced him to the term ‘disrupt impossible’, and he is determined to make impossible happen with his team, customers and partners every day.
