TweetChat! Meet Cisco’s New VP of Global Partner Marketing, Ask Your Questions Live

- November 7, 2011 - 2 Comments

Often new leaders take some time to ramp up and get settled in a new role, but Cisco’s new Vice President of Global Partner Marketing Amanda Jobbins who has been on the job just a few short months isn’t sitting by idly.

In her interview with Channel blogger The VAR Guy, Amanda laid out five core priorities to help partners engage with end customers and how she wants to: “Make Cisco the world’s preferred partner marketing experience.”

She also chatted with CRN about ways Cisco will be investing in partner marketing, new customizable campaigns to help partners sell to customers, and new incentives.

Between new innovative offerings and focus on existing marketing programs for partners, like Partner Velocity, it’s clear that Amanda has a lot on her mind.

  1. Congrats Amanda. Great to see Cisco improving outbound marketing tools for all channel partners. Those in the SME space have been starved for outbound campaigns that fit their need.

    • Hi Paul, Thanks for your comment and feedback -- glad you're seeing an improvement. We will ask Amanda to talk about outbound marketing tools and campaigns during the TweetChat. Drop in on the chat live or post your questions here on the blog and we'll make sure Amanda addresses them. ~Alex
