Cisco Exec Faced ‘Terrifying’ Deportation as Undocumented Immigrant

Me on Enterprise Cloud News:

Rowan Trollope, a Cisco senior vice president, was brought to the US as a boy without proper documentation, and was very nearly deported when he was 16 years old. Today, he takes a personal interest in “Dreamers” — immigrant children brought into the US without proper documentation….

Today, Trollope is senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s applications group, primarily overseeing software and software-as-a-service (SaaS), including collaboration technologies, the company’s $1.4 billion AppDynamics acquisition and $3.7 billion Jasper acquisition, and Internet of Things. He reports directly to CEO Chuck Robbins and he sits on the executive leadership team. He oversees more than $5 billion in revenue and well over 5,000 employees.
