Going, Going, Gone: 12 Notable Juniper Executive Exits


David Yen

In a monster defection from Juniper, Cisco in May 2011 confirmed David Yen would join its data center team, and Yen is now senior vice president and general manager, Data Center Group. While at Juniper, Yen was executive vice president and general manager of the Fabric and Switching Business Ggroup, and his move was a surprise to many given how closely involved he was with Juniper's long-in-development QFabric system, which had debuted three months earlier.

Juniper sources at the time told CRN that Yen chose to depart after being passed over for leadership of Juniper's Platform Systems Group -- a position that went to Dyckerhoff.
