(Reuters) - Gary Clark, a former IT chief technology officer at Juniper Networks Inc (JNPR.N: Quote), joined Tesla Inc (TSLA.O: Quote) in February as its chief information officer, according to Clark's LinkedIn profile.

Clark succeeds Jay Vijayan, who left the electric carmaker in January last year to start his own venture - Stealth Startup Company.

Tesla was not immediately available for comment.

Clark graduated from University of Surrey with a master's in science. He previously worked at Barclays Global Investors as managing director and head of technology services.

The Wall Street Journal earlier reported about Clark joining the automaker.
