Zheng named president of Manchester-based Minim
A founder of the company, she’s promoted as firm prepares for Nasdaq listing
Nicole Zheng, one of the company’s founders, has been named president of Minim, the Manchester-based maker of Motorola-branded internet access products. The announcement of Zheng’s appointment comes as the firm prepares for trading of its shares on the Nasdaq stock exchange next week.
With her new job, Zheng – an engineer who was one of the original founders of Minim before its merger last year with Zoom Telephonics – has served as chief marketing officer of the company since the merger. She will continue to serve in the CMO role as well.
Zheng, CMO at cloud software companies Antidote Technologies and OnSIP before joining Minim, has been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as an “Top Female Founder in the United States” and is a former board member of Alliance of Channel Women, a nonprofit that supports women in the telecom and broadband industries.
“Behind the scenes, Nicole has reached across departments and proved to be a multiplier on any initiative she touches,” said Minim CEO Gray Chynoweth. “With her former life as an engineer and experience as an operator, Nicole’s support is in high demand across the management team. Everyone on the team is eager to partner with her on what’s next.”
Meanwhile Minim said the company’s stock will begin trading July 7 on the Nasdaq under the symbol MINM.
Chynoweth said called the listing “another important milestone in Minim’s development.”
