Juniper CEO Stepping Down

Juniper Networks, CEO Kevin Johnson is calling it a day. Johnson announced his pending exit during Juniper's second quarter 2013 earnings call.

Johnson joined Juniper in July of 2008, replacing Scott Kriens, who had served as the company's CEO for 12 years.

"After 32 years in a line operating role, with the past 5 years here at Juniper, my family and I have decided it was time to take a break," Johnson said during Juniper's earnings call. "The company is healthy and growing and we have a strong management team and world-class talent in the domain of networking."

Juniper reported $1.15 billion in revenue for the second quarter, a 7 percent year-over-year gain. Looking forward, Juniper provided third quarter guidance for revenue to range from $1.14 billion to $1.18 billion.
