Cisco Systems announced a number of changes designed to organize its worldwide field sales into four "geographic theatres." These include:

  • Emerging Markets--to be led by Paul Mountford, Senior Vice President, Cisco Systems. Currently, Mountford runs Cisco's Worldwide Channels organization. This newly created theatre will bring together common disciplines and programs for regions which are now aggressively investing in new networking capabilities, including Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Africa, Russia and other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and eastern European nations.

  • European Markets--to be led by Chris Dedicoat, Senior Vice President, Cisco Systems. Currently, Dedicoat runs the geography sales organization within the EMEA theatre. The European Markets theatre will include more than 20 countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy.

  • United States and Canada--to be led by Robert Lloyd, Senior Vice President, Cisco Systems. Currently, Lloyd runs Cisco's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) theatre.

  • The current Asia Pacific and Japan theaters will remain unchanged.
