Welcoming Puppet’s new Chief Marketing Officer
Our team at Puppet is thrilled to welcome industry veteran, Gene Hall, as our new Chief Marketing Officer. Joining us with over 20 years of experience at Cisco, where he led the company’s Security, IT, and Marketing practices, Gene will be a core asset to Puppet’s market growth and development.
Meeting customers where they are
At Puppet, we remain hyperfocused on meeting the infrastructure needs of our customers through modernization, scalability, and engagement. Gene understands the importance of delivering strong customer experience. In his time at Cisco, he pioneered “voice of the customer” initiatives, which ultimately helped him develop and deliver Cisco’s first-ever global, integrated marketing program. His position on the leadership team will help Puppet continue to deliver world-class solutions to our customers that align with their needs and goals.
Approach to security and compliance
Employee device and application security has never been more paramount, especially across hybrid work environments where businesses are operating outside of traditional corporate networks. As Puppet continues to invest in our technology to ensure that businesses have the tools to manage their infrastructure and mitigate risk, we’re also investing in leadership personnel who share the same commitment to security and compliance. At Cisco, Gene directly contributed to the growth of the company’s Security practice, helping evolve it into the $3 billion+ business that it is today. His shared values around growth and development, and in-depth knowledge of the security space, will be foundational to Puppet’s growth trajectory.
Building sustainable teams
Gene’s leadership philosophy centers around building solutions-oriented teams. He believes in the importance of bridging longtime executive perspectives with the innovative views of employees just starting out. It’s such collaboration and engagement that will drive sustainable success.
As we head into 2022, we’re excited to be expanding our team. Having led a global team of marketing professionals for over two decades, Gene’s depth of experience guiding talent development will be instrumental to the growth of both our Marketing arm and the broader Puppet organization.
