re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees
Steven Haley (x VP of sales)

From a site where he is on a companies board.

"During the past four years he served as founding executive officer and vice president of worldwide operations, sales and service at Juniper Networks (NASDAQ: JNPR), a global leader in IP routers for the core of public and private networks."

Juniper was founded by Pradeep Sindhu, Dennis Ferguson and Bjorn Liencres. They are the only three people who have the founder title. As the company progressed Scott Kriens, Marcel Gani, Steven Haley, Gary Heinderich etc. were hired to take over the running of the company offloading the founders (mainly Pradeep) so that the founders could concentrate on the product development. I have known all the three founders and they are smart people. They are just outstanding.

I guess it boils down to how each of the initial team (both executive and engineers) members describe themselves to the rest of the world. Steven was hired as VP sale & service but was never a CEO of Juniper.

Having been in Juniper, irrespective of how many people claim to have founded Juniper, there are only three (above named)founders.

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees I've submitted a story edit to note that Krishnamurthi was not a Juniper founder. Sorry for the delay on this.

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees Uh, let's see - they got Anson Chen (who joined Netscreen shortly before the acquisition from Cisco). He was widely disliked at Cisco by alot of the same folks who are now at Juniper (as well as others who are still @cisco), so its safe to say he won't have an easy time of it.
He is a consumate micromanager (which was the same problem JNPR just got rid of by booting RK).
Perhaps Scott K. ought to just cut his losses now and boot Anson before he causes any real damage inside SPG engineering.

So, scratch one VP from the 'deep bench'.

Time will tell about the value of any of the other execs.

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees Is this you Jim??

Sorry, wrong number.

I'm not that good looking. I'm also not that intelligent. And I still have some hair, so you could call me a hairy UFO - if that amuses you.

But, I don't have an ego the size of a football stadium. And I don't think I'm holier than everyone else.

It's easy to sit on a high horse and talk down to people once you have made millions by cashing out on options. Some of these guys really believe they "deserved" all the money they made! It's just pathetic!

And no - I didn't loose any money on Wall Street during the crash. So this is not about sour grapes.

And no - I'm not Ashok's second cousin twice removed.

But, I do get pissed off by people who act like they know everything just because they made some money on some stinking stock options.

I am with you brother. This is especially true
in bay area and networking companies.

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees In CNET news, Juniper said that they have left a month ago. That means they official quit the company around the sametime as their CFO....

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees
Agreed Cisco/Cresendo is still reaping rewards.
Tell me where are the deal-makers who were front paged everyday as having the midas-touch. Like
Lou Volpi. Is Ms Ullal an awesome manager, or is
simply someone who is at the right place at the
right time (I dont know her)?

I know these do not make sensational news,
but do you know any Operational Managers
who are simply exceptional ? Are there any operational geniuses that dealt with the
set of cards they got handed into a
runaway success ? Simply by virtue of
plain old common sense and down to earth business-sense ? Guys who play the solid innings
and get those base hits each time 'at bat' ?
or am I just fanatasizing and is this field only
for 'prima donnas' and "flash in the pan" homers ?

re: Juniper 'Founder' Flees As a sidenote, how many acquisitions of Cisco and Juniper acould be deemed a "success"? Juniper seems to be a lot more cautious acquiring companies and therefore seems to have had more success, whereas I would think most acquisitions' products at Cisco got canned eventually. Would be an interesting and revealing statistic
