5 Companies That Had A Rough Week



Partner Marketing Exec Leaving Juniper Networks
 
Luanne Tierney, head of global partner marketing at Juniper Networks, is leaving the company amid a wider string of cutbacks to the company's marketing organization, CRN learned this week. The company plans to formally announce her departure next week. Tierney will be putting high-tech on hold to pursue her passion: writing a book. 
 
Last year, Juniper Networks was hit with an executive exodus that included many of the company's channel managers. The company disclosed its plans to cut back on marketing resources and funds as part of a broader cost-cutting effort in a recent filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
