SUNNYVALE, CA--Michael Busselen has departed McAfee to head communications at Juniper Networks, succeeding David Shane who left earlier this year.

Busselen joins Juniper as VP of corporate communications today, a Juniper Networks spokesperson confirmed. 

He leaves McAfee after five years as SVP of global external affairs and chief communications officer, where his duties included public relations, analyst relations, government affairs, corporate responsibility, and internal communications.

Busselen also partnered with the  finance team on investor relations during the three and a half year period that McAfee was public, and served as interim CMO for three months this year.

Shane departed Juniper in September, after two years with the technology company, which he joined after serving as HP's VP of global communications.
