Juniper Systems Founder Ron Campbell Retires - 11/07/2017
Juniper Systems Founder and Chairman Ron Campbell has retired from the company following a long and successful career. To celebrate his impactful career, his friends, family and colleagues gathered to wish him well and reminisce on the many memory-filled years together.
Several employees spoke about the achievements Ron has made over the years, and the positive impact he has had. During the gathering, it was announced that a perpetual college scholarship would be established in Ron’s name to honour his love for education and life-long learning. He was also presented with a plaque and a book filled with thoughtful entries from almost every employee to serve as a reminder of how appreciated his efforts truly are.
In the 24 years Juniper Systems has been in business for 24 years and it’s clear Ron’s legacy will continue to impact the organization and its surrounding community for years to come.
“A man like Ron cannot be replaced or easily forgotten,” said Juniper Systems President and CEO DeVon Labrum. “It’s difficult to put into words the impact he’s had on this company and on the lives of the employees. He has incredible vision that has helped guide this company.”
During his time at the company, Ron illustrated his passion for education and community by playing a key role in establishing the middle school in Mendon, UT. As chair of the committee conducting the necessary research for the recent bond election, his contribution allowed for the building of two high schools, additional elementary schools, and upgrades to several other schools in the Cache Valley School district. He has also remained a supporter of several other community and civic initiatives and endeavours.
