As part of the EUR-Uptime Tour 2012, Dyn’ers attended Velocity Europe, which was held in London this year. During the conference, Mike Hendrickson, Vice President of Content Strategy for O’Reilly Media, Inc., which puts on the conference, interviewed Dyn’s Phil Akilade.
Phi is the EMEA Regional Director for Dyn, which means he runs our Brighton, UK office and is instrumental in setting our vision for international expansion. During their talk, Phil discusses Dyn’s EMEA expansion, which is part of our global push, as well as our recently announced $38 million Series A investment led by North Bridge.
“Well, I think the first thing is, the big development is, we opened our UK office,” Akilade told Hendrickson. “When I met you last time there was only three of us in a little office in London in Berkeley Square.
“We now have a team of 10. We’ve moved down to Brighton, which is my hometown, which is great for me. That’s now the base for our European expansion.”
