“Everybody loves an awesome sequel: Terminator 2, The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight,” said Gray. “I’m so excited to work with some of Dyn’s best and the amazing talent at Minim. We will use the lessons learned at Dyn to build a company that delivers even more value to customers, an even better experience to employees, and even more substantial returns to stakeholders.”

In addition to Gray, we are also welcoming two more former Dyn leaders to the Minim team:

  • Andy Piggott, former Dyn VP User Experience, has joined Minim as SVP Customer Success
  • John D'Amato, former Dyn Director of BD, has joined Minim as VP Business Development

Gray, Andy, and John will be joining some familiar faces seeing as several Dyn alumni already work at Minim, including Minim Founder Elizabeth Hitchcock, Minim Senior QA Engineer Sarah Bennert, and Minim DevOps Engineer Christopher Flynn.

"I found Minim's story so compelling because of its roots in one of the darkest days in Dyn's history— the day the Mirai  botnet brought down many of the top websites," said John. "The opportunity to turn that dark day into a bright future for the internet is something I am excited to be a part of."
