Minim Strengthens Sales Leadership, Retail Veteran Joins Company as Next in Series of Seasoned Executive Hires

Manchester, NH - (NewMediaWire) - December 20, 2021 - Minim, Inc. (NASDAQ: MINM), the creator of intelligent networking products under the globally recognized Motorola brand, today welcomes Jeff Rodning as Director, National Retail Sales.

“I am excited to welcome Jeff to the team,” said Gray Chynoweth, CEO of Minim. “The US retail market for intelligent connectivity products is strong and poised for continued growth. With our recent software-driven product introductions and expansion into the mesh WiFi category, we needed a leader with deep experience in growing market share with retail leaders like Best Buy and Target.”

Jeff Rodning joins Minim as Director, National Retail Sales, effective today. Located in Minneapolis, MN, Jeff has more than 30 years of retail sales experience, including more than 20 years with Eastman Kodak and Philips Electronics. Throughout his career as a sales leader, Jeff has focused on growing relationships with Best Buy and Target, including during his time at DiSa, Tech21, Bush Industries, Philips Electronics, and Eastman Kodak. Mr. Rodning holds a Bachelor of Science from Minnesota State University.

Minim is a top 3 leader for DOCSIS products in Amazon, Best Buy, and other leading retailers, with active Motorola sales channels in Walmart, Target Micro Center, B&H, Newegg, and Staples. The recent launches of the Motorola WiFi 6 "AX" portfolio and intelligent motosync app, powered by Minim, continue to establish new leadership positions for the innovative Motorola brand.

“Jeff has more than three decades of impressive and proven expertise in retail, the majority of which has been spent in the consumer electronics category and selling into leading US retailers,” Chynoweth added. “I’m confident with him and his expertise on the team, we will be positioned to accelerate retail sales growth next year.”

Mr. Rodning is the third seasoned leader to join Minim in the last month, following Bill Wallace, who joined the company as VP, Hardware from CommScope Arris, and Lakshmi Kadiyala, who joined the company as VP, Software from Charles Schwab.
