Chief Technology Officer

Cisco

Cisco's Chief Technology and Strategy Officer oversees the computer networking giant's investment and acquisition strategy. And Warrior has certainly kept busy, leading at least 15 acquisitions over the last 12 months, including Ubiquisys, a UK-based provider of technologies that improve mobile data connectivity. Cisco CEO John Chambers called her one of the sharpest minds in technology. Those are more than just kind words: Chambers also announced earlier this year Warrior is a frontrunner to succeed him when he retires.
