“Juniper is at a size and scale where it's important to have somebody leading that effort,” says Shane. “I wanted to hire a world-class executive with deep technology experience. We look forward to having Adam join the team.”
Shane adds that Christensen will be part of his senior leadership team and that he will be based at the global headquarters in Sunnyvale. Among Christensen's other duties are working with the corporate marketing organization and partnering with business groups.
Christensen, an eight-year veteran of IBM, who most recently was a manager of social business strategies and execution at the corporate office, starts April 25 at Juniper. Christensen has also held PR positions at Brodeur Worldwide, Novell, and Coltrin & Associates.
Shane says that Juniper used the firm Judith Cushman & Associates, of Seattle, to recruit Christensen.
