Cisco didn’t officially announce it, but we’re told that the company has expanded svp/gm of Service Provider Video Software and Solutions Group (SPVSS) Yvette Kanouff’s role in driving its cloud strategy. The company has combined its Cloud Virtualization Group, led by svp/gm Gee Rittenhouse, and Cloud Infrastructure Services unit, led by svp of cloud infrastructure and managed services organization Faiyaz Shahpurwala, into a new organization led by Kanouff. The new group will include the service provider software and solutions business. Both Rittenhouse and Shahpurwala will report to Kanouff, who will relocate to San Jose. As part of the change, Conrad Clemson, vp of strategy at the Service Provider Video Technology Group, will be the new leader of SPVSS. “This is the right time and opportunity to bring together our Cloud groups under one leader to drive scale, sharpen our focus and unify our priorities… Yvette’s strategy, technical and business execution expertise will help ensure we continue our momentum in cloud,” a spokeswoman said.
