Before that, Adamo was Senior Vice President for the service provider business globally where he's given credit for significant segment growth and increased business relevance for customers in the rapidly evolving telecommunications industry.

Before joining Cisco in 1995 as an account executive supporting Merrill Lynch, Adamo spent 11 years with IBM in sales and sales management assignments in the finance industry.

ATIS is a United States-based organization that is committed to rapidly developing and promoting technical and operations standards for the communications and related IT industry. Adamo also is a member of the Board of Directors for ThruPoint, a leading provider of IT consulting services serving Fortune 500 firms around the globe. He was recognized by Crain's New York Business Magazine in 2001 as one of New York City's 100 most influential IT executives.
