Cisco Restructures Asia Pacific and Japan Operations

Cisco announced a restructuring of its operations in Asia Pacific and Japan.


Effective February 2010, the company will create three theaters that will enable a more focused strategy and investment of resources to countries within the region.


China P.R.C., Hong Kong and Taiwan, formerly part of the Asia Pacific Theater, will now form a separate Greater China Theater. The remaining countries in Asia Pacific will form the Asia Pacific Theater and Cisco's Japanese operations will continue as the Japan Theater.


The new Greater China Theater will be led by Owen Chan, President and CEO, Greater China Theater, reporting to Robert Lloyd, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Operations. Chan joined Cisco in 1999 and has been President of Cisco's Asia Pacific region for the past five years. He will be relocating from Hong Kong to Beijing, China.


Jim Sherriff will continue in his role of developing and leading Cisco's cross-functional execution of the company's overall China strategy including government affairs, supply chain, product development, corporate affairs, corporate development and strategic alliances.


In addition to his current responsibilities leading Cisco Japan, Edzard Overbeek will assume leadership of the Asia Pacific Theater. As President, Asia Pacific and Japan Theaters, he will continue reporting to Robert Lloyd. http://www.cisco.com
