Mr. Mennie joins Halogen as Vice President of Product Management and Strategy, reporting to Karen Williams, Halogen’s Chief Product Officer. In this role, Mr. Mennie will lead the company in defining and amplifying its future solution vision, while building on Halogen’s product strengths and driving technical innovation.

Mr. Mennie joins the company from Acquia, one of North America’s fastest growing PaaS and SaaS software companies, where he ran global product marketing. Prior to Acquia, he led the product go-to-market strategy for a portfolio of over 30 products and solutions for the $750M Enterprise Content Division of EMC Corporation, leveraging his earlier experience in engineering leadership roles.
