Boustridge is the former President of BT Global Services, a company that delivers a combination of communications and IT services to customers organizations and governments worldwide. He joined BT Global Services in April 2007, assuming responsibility for all aspects of their operations and performance in the United States and Canada and Financial Services and finally running all of the Global MNC (MultiNational Customer) business.
“Michael brings a long-term view of technology and insight into how larger companies operate that will help us navigate our future,” said Jeremy Hitchcock, Dyn CEO.
The addition of Boustridge to Dyn’s board is another nod toward the company’s continued focus on international expansion and the development of new enterprise channels — two specialties of the Texas-based tech legend.
“When joining a board, I want to associate myself with companies that are applying innovative approaches to technology and solving real world problems,” Boustridge said. “I have found both of those with Dyn. This is a company with an amazing track record and an even brighter future. I am happy to be playing a small role in helping guide that future.”
Prior to the BT run, he was the Chief Sales and Chief Marketing Officer at EDS, an information technology equipment and services company founded by Ross Perot, where he led the company’s $22 billion global revenue sales engine.
In addition, Boustridge is member of the Board of Trustees for XPRIZE Foundation, an educational nonprofit organization with the mission to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity, as well as other high tech companies. He also sits on the board of Riverbed Technology, Inc., Ciber, Contact Solutions LLC, Presidio and Cyan.

- Jeremy Hitchcock, Dyn CEO and co-founder
- Jason Calacanis, founder and CEO of Mahalo, co-founder of ThisWeekIn, co-founder and former CEO of Weblogs, Inc. (acq. by AOL) and a respected angel investor
