Jennifer Martella

Sr. Director of Customer Success Strategy Management

Cisco Systems

Cisco is creating a world of potential by connecting people, places, and things. I lead a great team supporting planning, execution, communication, and measurement of our product marketing strategy. This work supports Cisco's inspiring customers to choose, love, and champion our products and solutions.

I love who I get to work with every day, how much we learn from one another, and the positive impact we make to help our customers!

I spend a lot of time in meetings. Doing something that changes our business or helps our customers usually takes people working together and talking through challenges to see real results.

I started out in sales and realized I loved technology. I became an engineer who built systems and then became a product manager who designed systems. I wanted to help more people understand technology and moved into communications. After running my own company, I joined Cisco, and have invested many years in strategy and planning.

For as much as I love my work, I always want to be a better mom. In addition, I hope to become a better marketer who helps girls and women achieve their own professional aspirations.

I love spending time with my family and traveling to fun places. I also enjoy great movies and books... stories told across any medium are simply the best ways to let our imaginations take flight! And from there? We can do anything!
