John T. Chambers, Chairman and CEO of Cisco Systems

As co-chair of TechNet, a bipartisan network of tech CEOs, Chambers has become a public spokesperson for high-skilled immigration reform, which the organization has lobbied for with both President Obama and the Congress.

Cisco lobby efforts have also not gone unnoticed, coming in at $900,000 during the last quarter.

"Now--as the House of Representatives takes up the issue--Cisco will continue to work with our legislative leaders to ensure that the reforms help attract the best, the brightest and the most ambitious minds from around the world to our shores," Chambers said after praising the Senate on their passage of the immigration reform bill earlier this summer.
