Cisco Systems said Tuesday that it has named Padmasree Warrior chief technology officer.

Warrior comes from Motorola where she was CTO. In a statement, Cisco said Warrior "will play a key leadership role in the continued development and communication of Cisco's technology strategy and vision." She will report to CEO John Chambers.

Warrior became Motorola's CTO in 2003 and jumps to a company with decidedly better prospects. Motorola just replaced Ed Zander as CEO and is struggling to regain its footing. Relative to Motorola, Cisco is a plum gig.
