5 Companies That Came To Win This Week


Juniper this week named Jonathan Belcher (pictured), until now the vice president of partner sales for Asia-Pacific, to be the company's new U.S. channel chief. Word of the appointment comes just days before the start of the networking company's Global Partner Conference in Las Vegas.

Juniper was plagued with a number of executive departures in 2013, including the loss of U.S. channel chief Chris Jones and other managers of the networking company's channel program.

Channel partners welcomed Belcher's appointment, telling CRN they hope it's a signal that Juniper is returning to some measure of stability among the company's executive ranks and channel management.
