Lynne and her team stay brilliant in the basics to support the dynamic US Commercial market, which includes small, mid-market, Fortune 500 and 1000 companies. These agile customers look to Cisco as a trusted advisor, and provider, as they navigate a multi-cloud world, build secure network platforms and disrupt markets across the industry.
