CA Technologies’ new CMO

Steve’s breakdown: Juniper Networks, Nortel Networks and 25 years at IBM. That’s the resume of this new CMO and we suspect she’ll be looking to make her mark at CA.

ISLANDIA, NY: CA Technologies today announced that Lauren P. Flaherty has been named executive vice president and chief marketing officer, effective August 1, 2013. Flaherty will report directly to CA Technologies Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Gregoire.

Before joining CA Technologies, Flaherty was executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Juniper Networks, one of the world’s most successful networking companies.
