Juniper Appoints Kevin Johnson as CEO

Juniper Network appointed Kevin Johnson as its new CEO, replacing Scott Kriens who will continue as chairman of the board and will remain active in the areas of strategy and leadership development.


Johnson joins Juniper Networks from Microsoft, where he served in a range of strategic executive assignments over the course of his 16-year tenure, most recently as president of the Platforms and Services Division. Under his leadership, the division achieved record breaking results with over $20 billion in revenue in fiscal year 2008. In addition to leading the Windows business, Mr. Johnson focused on building Microsoft's position as a leader in online advertising and evolving its "software + services" strategy.


"The Juniper team has been at the heart of the success we have realized since the founding of the company in 1996, and Scott has been at the center of that team with me since those early days," commented Pradeep Sindhu, founder and chief technology officer of Juniper Networks.http://www.juniper.net
