Cisco Community Designated VIP Class of 2020

Monica Lluis
Community Manager

Hearty Congratulations!



We are extremely excited to announce the 2020 Cisco Designated VIP class for the Cisco Community. This time we have 48 VIPs. All thanks to the incredible contributions you've made to the Community.

The Cisco Designated VIP program recognizes the top external individual contributors in Cisco's online communities, including Cisco Community, and Cisco Learning (CLN).

Cisco Designated VIPs are recognized by their peers for their expertise and tireless contributions, and their abundant participation is vital to community success. With this program, Cisco formally recognizes the positive, valuable influence our top individual members exert on the communities overall. 

Heartfelt congratulations to these Cisco technology industry leaders!

Thank you to all the 2019 Cisco Designated VIPs for all their contributions last year. We appreciate all your contributions regardless of the VIP status. We're always grateful since you are the soul of the Community and thanks to your knowledge sharing, this community continues to thrive.

- Cisco Community Team

This distinction is only given to a select group of Cisco customers, partners and guest community members, based on many factors in the program. We are so grateful of the extensive community involvement of these highly respected technology experts. You can view their profiles and “follow” their posts to grow your knowledge.
