Heard in the Halls: Services VP Raja Sundaram Leaving Cisco?

The exit door is getting a lot of use these days at Cisco Systems (CSCO). The latest exec to leave is Raja Sundaram, vice president of Partners and Alliances for Cisco’s Worldwide Services Partner Organization.

So far no official announcement has been made, and Cisco hasn’t confirmed his leaving.

Sundaram has been at Cisco for 20 years, serving in various positions before taking the Services VP slot in 2011. He leads the Services strategic alliances with global system integrators, consulting partners, service providers, technology partners and ISVs, according to the Cisco website.

His departure is the latest in a series of going-away parties at Cisco since Chuck Robbins took over the CEO slot earlier this year. Within a month of his appointment, Robbins announced his executive team, and some well-known names—including Chambers’ heir apparents Rob Lloyd and Padmasree Warrior—were not included. Lloyd and Warrior since have left, as has Edison Peres, senior vice president of Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Partner Organization who left in August, and Bruce Klein, senior vice president of Worldwide Channels who left in July. Wendy Bahr has moved into Klein’s former seat.

There is no word yet on Sundaram’s post-Cisco plans (hey, Raja, give us a call). But watch this space for more details as we get them.
