There is life after the Borg... in social media management platforms apparently
Outgoing Cisco executive chairman John Chambers is to join the board of directors on social media management outfit Sprinklr, no doubt the first of many non-exec roles the former Switchzilla boss will hold.
Earlier this week, Chambers announced he would not stand for re-election to the board of directors in December.
Chambers was at the helm of Cisco during the Borg's boom years in the 1990s and became executive chairman in 2015 after stepping down from his role as CEO for 20 years and handing the reins to Chuck Robbins.
After announcing his departure, Chambers tweeted: "My next chapter is going to be focused on the development of startup companies, nations, & a startup world driving innovation & job creation."
Sprinklr provides apps for companies to place digital ads, schedule social media campaigns, and manage online reviews.
