Manchester, NH (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet performance solutions, announced the hiring of Matt Engel, former partner at Prism Venture Partners, as VP of Business Development.
In this newly created role, Engel is responsible for expanding Dyn’s market position and revenue growth by fostering new business initiatives, driving key strategic partnerships and leading the corporate development efforts.
Engel spent more than 10 years working with privately held technology companies across various stages in both operating and investing capacities. Most recently, he was a partner at Prism Venture Partners, an early stage venture capital firm that focused on software and services.
Prior to working at Prism, Engel held finance and business development roles at GeoTrust, a SaaS provider of SSL and other trusted certificates, culminating in driving a $125M sale to VeriSign on the board’s behalf.
“The opportunity to join a company with the combination of vision, innovation, customer relationships and culture at Dyn is extraordinary,” Engel said. “Collaborating with the executive team to build upon their leading market position, and establishing a growth trajectory by leveraging Dyn’s products and services in new and unique ways is where I want to be.”
Engel also serves on the board of directors for Sonian, a leading cloud-based SaaS archiving company.
“Even as Dyn has continued to grow, there are still significant market opportunities available. Now is the time to further invest in our already talented business development organization,” said Kyle York, Dyn Chief Revenue Officer. “Matt’s breadth of experience in operating roles at a high growth SaaS company and in venture capital evaluating, advising and working closely with technology companies will provide valuable insight and perspective to our team.”
