TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Alvio Barrios

Senior Vice President, Americas Sales 
Juniper Networks

Barrios, a 24-year veteran of the telecommunications and technology sector, leads Juniper’s Enterprise Vertical Industries and Commercial businesses for the Americas, where, since 2011, he has been responsible for driving sales, services and go-to-market strategy. But if the headlines are to be believed, 2018 may be among his most active years in the business, thanks, in part, to the release in August of Juniper’s new 5G-ready firewall-processing card, a product that takes full advantage of the growing demand for data center virtualization, cloud computing and mobile traffic convergence. A leader in data center networking, the Sunnyvale, California–based multinational has made huge strides in recent years to compete in the cloud against big players like Cisco and Intel, and the 5G wireless system upgrades, for which Barrios will be charged with marketing, should be a key to the company’s continued success.
