Prior to landing your new position, were you currently working or in-transition? In-transition with some consultancy work.
How did you get connected to the company where you landed your new role? I’ve known the CEO from the time we both worked together at Cisco.
What allowed you to stand-out during the interview process? I was fortunate that the CEO was looking for someone to step in to manage the legal function. The strong working relationship we had at Cisco meant that there were no other candidates in the mix.
If you could give an in-transition executive any piece of advice, what would it be? Stay positive, build a routine. In many ways you’re not in transition. You’re working your way towards your next compelling opportunity.
What events and/or resources offered by the Executive Network have helped enhance your career? The OC Executive Networking Group and OC Technology and Life Sciences Round Table.
