Juniper Networks has named Chris M. Jones as vice president of partner sales, following the high-profile departure of Americas channel chief Frank Vitagliano to Dell at the end of March. Jones, who joined Juniper in 2010, previously held the spot of vice president of worldwide sales at the company, a position focused on enterprise sales.

According to a blog post on Juniper’s site, Jones has been in the position since April 1. In a Q&A posted on the blog, Jones said he plans to drive collaboration between Juniper’s partners and the company’s sales team. Juniper is planning “proactive enablement activities” for partners.

Prior to joining Juniper, Jones was director of worldwide channels for Cisco WebEx from 2008-2010, having joined Cisco in 2005. Prior to Cisco, he spent six years at Proxim, and prior to that, five years at US Robotics.
