Lori Cornmesser, head of Worldwide Partner Development at Juniper, left in October to join network monitoring and testing specialist Ixia Communications. She is now Ixia's first-ever worldwide channel chief.
Cornmesser had an 11-year run at Juniper, where she most recently drove the company's partner enablement efforts. She also had gigs overseeing Juniper's service provider alliances and global managed services partnerships.
"I wasn't necessarily looking to make a move," Cornmesser told CRN when she left. "And I made a conscious decision that I didn't want to go out and compete with a company I helped build for 11 years. Ixia really fit all the things I was looking for in terms of my next move."
