Fisher joined Intel in 1995 and for the first few years managed several new product development and research efforts including projects around remote LAN access, data over VBI, and “Internet in a box” before moving to Intel’s Enterprise Platform Group where he led the Server Management Software development organization for three years. In 1999, Fisher transferred to Intel Online Services as the director of engineering for Europe and moved to England to set up the international engineering organization. In 2000, he was appointed director of worldwide engineering for Intel Online Services.

Prior to joining Intel, Fisher worked for 10 years at Hewlett-Packard where he started his career as a software developer on a real-time operating system with his final role as the marketing manager over the OpenView Network Node Manager product line.
