Technology is changing everything. It’s solving some of the world’s greatest challenges and transforming our customers’ businesses in new and unprecedented ways. Our job is to help our customers navigate this complexity—so there’s never been a better time to tell the Cisco story clearly and concisely. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that Oliver Roll is joining Cisco as our new SVP and Chief Communications Officer!

In his role, Oliver will lead analyst and public relations, executive and employee communications and Office of the CEO communications.

Oliver joins us from VMWare where he was Chief Communications Officer and led brand and communications work. He’s held senior leadership roles in communications and marketing in Europe, Asia and the United States.

I’m looking forward to working with Oliver as he guides our world-class communications team in sharing the Cisco story and vision!
