“Padma is an accomplished business leader with nearly 30 years’ experience within the technology industry, as both a strategist and innovator,” said Glenn Murphy, Gap Inc. chairman and chief executive officer. “As we increase our investment in serving customers across all channels, Padma’s relevant expertise will be an asset to our board and management team.” 

Ms. Warrior is responsible for Cisco’s worldwide business and technology strategy, mergers and acquisitions, equity investments, and innovation.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Gap Inc., a company that understands the importance of integrating technology and retail in ways that improve the lives of its customers,” said Ms. Warrior. “It is an exciting time to join the Board, especially given the momentum in the business, and I am looking forward to contributing to the long-term success and shareholder value of the company.”

Prior to joining Cisco Systems, Ms. Warrior worked at Motorola for 23 years, where she started as a research engineer and exited as its Chief Technology Officer.  Her roles of increasing responsibility over the years included leading global innovation, overall research and development, Global Software Group and Early Stage Businesses.  She also led the Motorola’s Energy Systems Group, which was a global business with diversified products in the mobile phone, portable computing and hand held electronics markets.

Ms. Warrior has been recognized year-over-year as a top business leader, including Forbes “100 Most Powerful Women in Business,” Fast Company “100 Most Creative People in Business,” and Wall Street Journal “50 Women to Watch.”
