Ranganath Salgame, the face of Cisco India and SAARC, has left the company after being in the saddle for three years.
Rangu, as he’s popularly known, helped build Cisco into a strong, customer focused organization. Cisco strengthened under his baton.
Daring to dream big, this visionary and bright strategist lent top most priority to satisfying the customer.
Last year, speaking to a group publication of The SmartTechie, Rangu said that a strong foundation, the correct leadership and a focused leadership were his mantras to build a successful organization.
Before joining Cisco, Rangu spent about four years advising and managing venture capital backed companies. He was also the president and CEO of Edgix, and senior executive with Verizon Communications.
David Caspari, Cisco’s vice-president of Service Provider Operations, Asia Pacific will become the acting president of Cisco India, till a replacement is found.
