Verma, an industry veteran with over three decades of experience in leading key operations of top telecom and IT companies, will be tasked with driving consistent high-impact growth for Juniper across India and SAARC region – a top business priority for Juniper’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) strategy.
“Dinesh’s appointment highlights just how much of a priority India and SAARC is for us in the region. I look forward to working closely with Dinesh to build strong, strategic and consistent growth, as we continue to drive what we believe is the best in networking innovation, performance and automation for our partners and customers,” said Daniel Hua, Juniper’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of APAC.
Juniper has witnessed seven consecutive quarters of growth in APAC. “I’m delighted to join Juniper Networks at a time when digital transformation, which is a top priority for enterprises and government in India, is driving the Indian economy. With Juniper having already built a stellar foundation for success across the region, I’m excited to be a part of the team, driving our Indian growth story even further,” said Dinesh Verma.
Dinesh most recently headed sales for British Telecom (BT) Global Services, the global telecom services arm of British Telecom. Prior to joining BT, he held similar leadership roles at IBM, Cisco and Ericsson.
