I am very pleased to welcome Maciej Kranz to the Manufacturing Blog community.
Maciej is the VP and General Manager of the Connected Industries Group (CIG) here at Cisco.
He drives the vision and strategy for a business unit that’s focused on developing intelligent networks for process and discrete manufacturing, transportation, machine-to-machine communication and connected vehicles.
Before leading CIG, Maciej led other Cisco teams that help to improve the business processes of Cisco customers. He led the efforts across Cisco businesses to define, prioritize, and deliver Borderless Network Architecture and roadmaps so that enterprises can conduct business and communicate from anywhere, anytime, and in any way they wish – as Borderless Networks.
Earlier, he was VP of Marketing for the Wireless Networking Business Unit (WNBU). His team established industry-renowned positioning for Cisco with the Cisco Motion strategy and led the transition to 802.11n-based networks.
Maciej also led marketing for the stackable Ethernet switching business unit which he grew to a multi-billion dollar business across enterprise, small business, and Metro Ethernet networks.
Before Cisco, Maciej held executive and management roles at IPHighway, Inc. and 3Com Corporation and he began his professional career at IBM Corporation in International Marketing.
It will be a pleasure to have Maciej’s insights and observations here on the blog.
