An in-depth chat with Cisco’s retiring channel chief
It’s a bit of an “end of the era” moment in the Cisco channel community, as Keith Goodwin, who’s headed up Cisco’s Worldwide Partner Organization for some seven years, is set to retire as the calendar flips over to August.
But before he goes, Goodwin was gracious enough to spend some time on the phone with me, reminiscing about his time on the job, from the early days of completing the transition from “volume to value” through to the current “return on Cisco” era and all points in between. Goodwin shares some of his favourite memories from his time on the job, as well as what he’d liked to have seen go down differently.
Join us after the jump for more on some of the highlights of Goodwin’s run as head of the WWPO, and his thoughts on what comes next for him personally and for the Cisco channel community.
