Cisco Canada appoints new president
Cisco announced the appointment of Rola Dagher as the new president of Cisco Canada.
Dagher joins Cisco from Dell EMC, where she held a variety of leadership roles in sales, channels, and IT. Most recently, she served as Vice President and General Manager of the Canadian Infrastructure Solutions Group for Dell EMC, responsible for leading the server, storage, networking, solutions, and systems engineering business.
Dagher replaces Bernadette Wightman, who has led Cisco Canada since 2014. Under Wightman’s leadership, Cisco Canada launched the Cisco Toronto Innovation Centre and the Cisco Women’s Entrepreneur Circle, focused on building an ecosystem to support innovation in Ontario and across Canada. Wightman has successfully completed her contract in Canada and is returning to the U.K.
“Cisco Canada is not only one of our leading country operations globally, but is also a key centre of innovation and R&D for the company,” said Alison Gleeson, senior vice president, Americas, in a statement. “We thank Dette for her leadership, her dedication to driving customer impact, and commitment to impacting diversity. Congratulations to Rola as she takes over the reins of this outstanding team.”
