Juniper Networks appointed Kristian Kerr as Head of Channel, Alliances and Commercial for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In this role, Mr. Kerr is responsible for all aspects of channel and partner strategy, planning and operations across Juniper’s EMEA business.
Prior to joining Juniper, Mr. Kerr ran the EMEA partner organisation for Brocade Communications. Overall, his management career in networking has spanned nearly 20 years, in a range covering indirect and direct sales roles, for various leading technology vendors and service provider enterprise divisions.
“High-performance, secure, and automated networking is at the heart of successful business transformation via the cloud. This means Juniper’s virtualised and physical security, routing and switching portfolio is in a sweet spot of opportunity, so I feel I’m joining at a critical time to help take EMEA channel operations to a new level. The company has always had a very strong partner-driven go-to-market model. Ultimately, it’s about delivering excellent business outcomes for our shared customers and achieving business growth for Juniper and our partners alike,” said Kristian Kerr.
