Juniper Networks offers high-performance network solutions to help service providers, enterprises & the public sector create value & accelerate success.

Recently, the company has appointed Bruce Bennie as its new sales director for Australia and New Zealand.

As an integral part of the local Juniper Networks team, the organisation says Bennie will be responsible for the development and management of operations, processes and initiatives for the ANZ Enterprise Sales team.

He will also have a renewed focus on blending the core IP networking business with the Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN).

Bennie brings more than 33 years of industry experience to the role. In his most recent position, he worked as the country manager for Infoblox and prior to that he was the managing director for Bluecoat Systems.

“I’m delighted to join Juniper Networks during this exciting period of growth and innovation for the business,” he says.

“With a disruptive vision at the core of everything we do, I’m excited to be part of the milestones set to define Juniper’s success in the near future.”

For Juniper, Bennie’s vast array of contacts and experience will be crucial towards driving its ANZ business strategy - in particular with the focus on strengthening its working relationships with a range of close partners and alliances, to best address changing needs and demands.

Ralph Candiloro, regional VP for Juniper ANZ, says Bennie’s appointment marks a new phase of anticipated growth for the ANZ business.

“I look forward to working closely with Bruce to drive Juniper’s local strategy forward as we prepare to scale in support of Juniper’s accelerated growth.”
