SAN FRANCISCO — CMO Blair Christie has assumed interim leadership of Cisco's corporate communications since Karen Tillman departed to join GoDaddy.

Tillman joined Cisco in 2010 and was promoted to VP of global corporate communications in January 2012. She left Cisco last month to become CCO and SVP at web hosting company GoDaddy.
Blair previously ran corporate comms at Cisco from 2007 to 2011 before being promoted to CMO.

"She is working closely with the team’s senior staff to determine the right leadership structure going forward," said a Cisco spokesperson.
