New CFO at Cisco

- February 12, 2008 - 0 Comments

Dennis Powell is passing the Cisco CFO baton to Frank Calderoni. This morning, they jointly opened the NASDAQ stock market and on Friday, February 15th, Calderoni officially assumes the role of Cisco CFO. I’ve had the pleasure of working with both men and while I’m sad to see Dennis go, Frank is a great replacement. I first got to work with Dennis when he was our executive in charge of Y2K operations and planning when I managed the media for that “event.” He is a great guy and, just as his predecessor Larry Carter is missed daily at Cisco, we’ll miss Dennis as well.I’ve now had the opportunity to work with Frank over the past year or so and he is a great successor to Dennis and Larry’s legacy of a strong, transparent, conservative finance organization that focuses on shareholder value. You can read more about Frank and his approach to his new role here. The press release announcing the transition is here.nasdaq - cisco - 12 feb 2008.jpgFrank Calderoni (left) with Dennis Powell (right) at the opening of NASDAQ in New York this morning.Here’s hoping that Dennis will focus on working to lower his golf handicap and that Frank’s skyrockets. : )
