SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking,
today announced the appointment of Lauren Flaherty to the position of executive
vice president and chief marketing officer. Flaherty will oversee the full
breadth of the company`s global marketing activities, and will report directly
to company CEO, Kevin Johnson. 

Flaherty brings to her role at Juniper a strong combination of Enterprise and
Service Provider marketing experience. Most recently, she served as CMO of
Nortel Networks from 2006-2008. While at Nortel, Flaherty created a fully
integrated marketing function that represented all lines of business, and
created Nortel`s first Global Marketing Board, which enabled the development of
marketing investments that were fully aligned to sales and the company`s
strategic objectives. Flaherty also led many of Nortel`s strategic business
initiatives, including the company`s first global Enterprise campaign,
leadership of the company`s green marketing initiatives and its bids for
sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Olympic Games. Prior to
Nortel, Flaherty spent 26 years at IBM in a variety of product marketing
leadership positions including software and servers. She also led many
company-wide initiatives, such as Solutions for a small planet, e-business, on
demand business, and marketing targeting key segments for small-and-medium
businesses (SMBs). Flaherty has been recognized three times by BtoB Magazine as
one of the "World`s Best Marketers" and was named to the Women`s Executive
Network Top 100 in 2007 and 2008. 

"I`m excited to welcome Lauren to our executive team," said Johnson. "Her track
record and global experience centered on building operational excellence,
world-class marketing teams and delivering results are precisely what will help
us build our connected sales and marketing model and take the company to the
next level." 

"Juniper is a very exciting company to join," said Flaherty. "Those who know the
company well are sold on the company`s terrific engineering and the incredible
talent supporting them." She added, "Juniper is a bit of a well-kept secret.
There`s a great story here and we`re going to unleash it."
