Author Bio

Dan Mellinger
Senior Director of Corporate Communications
Ever-searching for the stories that data wants to tell, Dan is a weekly podcaster, constant social media poster, persistent pitchman, and occasional blogger.

WHAT HE REALLY DOES: Manages Kenna’s communications function, including PR, AR, SM, and a whole bunch of other acronyms that he refuses to clarify but insists are very important.


WHY READ HIS BLOG: From running PR for Alienware to communications for Fortinet, Dan loves immersing himself in highly complex technologies and finding the compelling stories to tell.


ODD FACT: Dan knows every line of Romeo & Juliet thanks to the “awesome” mid-90s movie. (Yeah, the one with Danes and DiCaprio. Just don’t ask.)
