Amy Chang, a top Cisco executive who has led the company’s collaboration division for nearly two years, has taken a leave of absence for an unspecified period.
Chang’s time off comes amid a restructuring within Cisco. David Goeckeler, general manager of Cisco’s networking and security group, resigned to become CEO of Western Digital. The company took Goeckeler’s departure apparently as an opportunity to reorganize into five new product groups.
Under the reorganization, the head of Cisco’s collaboration business will no longer report to the CEO. Instead, that person will answer to the leader of the new security and applications group. Cisco said it planned to appoint an executive to oversee the new group in the future.
