Fabien Medat

Head of Technical Expertise
Collaboration France

In my current role as the head of the French Unified Communications & Collaboration consulting team, I'm responsible for customer engagement, partner enablement and service creation and Business Units relationships in order to provide technical support for our in-country UC & Collaboration business.

We, as a team, are responsible for supporting key opportunities, promoting our solutions (partners, customers, consulting firms, press), and developing new partner offers through service creation activities.

Throughout my professional career at Cisco I've been passionate about developing unified communications solutions and enjoy my role leading teams delivering these solutions to the market.

As a Unified Communications & Collaboration veteran (since 1999), I’m driven by curiosity and interested in being an actor in market transitions such as VoIP to ToIP, to IP Communications, to Unified Communications including video to Collaboration.

After my engineering school, I started to work for Cisco as an intern in Unified Communications in 1999. I achieved CCIE R&S certification in 2001.

Since then, I have been working in various pre-sales & consulting positions in companies delivering Networking and Unified Communications technology.

In 2007, I was recruited as a channel System Engineer, then Consulting System Engineer one year later.

In 2010, I was appointed as a Collaboration CTO for EMEAR south Theatre.
