Juniper names Allison new EMEA partner boss

UK-based Juniper insider Gerard Allison to take over as new EMEA partner vice president

Juniper Networks has named long-serving staffer Gerard Allison as its new vice president of partners for EMEA.

Allison has been knocking around at Juniper since the turn of the century, holding a number of senior management roles including VP of enterprise and area VP for the UK and Ireland.

He replaces David Helfer, who has taken up the post of worldwide channels and commercial VP after keeping EMEA warm for the past three years.

Allison will take charge of the structure, management and performance of Juniper’s channel partner and commercial business across the region, reporting to EMEA SVP Sean Dolan.

Dolan commented: “In 2014, with Juniper sales and partners working as one team, we will ensure our go-to-market structure remains strong and effective, particularly for our continued push into the security, mobility and datacentre markets.

“Gerard is leading this evolution, across the service provider and enterprise sectors in EMEA. He is a proven, trusted leader for the team.”

Allison added: “The partner business has always been close to my heart, and I am really looking forward to the challenge of leading Juniper’s EMEA team to success. I believe the quality of our channel organisation and partners is [sic] crucial to helping customers build the best networks in pursuit of their business aspirations.”
