Kheradpir is leaving the bank to take up the chief executive officer at Juniper Networks, a network IT firm based in the U.S. Prior to working at Barclays, Kheradpir served as the executive vice president and chief information and technology officer for Verizon Communications. He will take up his new post at Juniper Networks at the beginning of January, according to a statement from the company.

Sants has been on sick leave since the beginning of October, according to Barclays’ statement, and has been suffering from stress and exhaustion. The statement said that he told the bank he will not be resuming his work in the near term, and opted to resign.
