Zigbee welcomes Michelle Mindala-Freeman and Krista Ingram
By Anthony Capkun
February 4, 2021 – The Zigbee Alliance—an organization of companies creating, maintaining, and delivering open, global IoT standards—announced they have been joined by Michelle Mindala-Freeman and Krista Ingram as as head of Marketing and director of Marketing Programs, respectively.
Michelle will help promote the alliance’s mission, standards and solutions. She comes into role from Microsoft, where she was a digital advisor for the North America CTO office.
Krista is actually re-joining Zigbee. She was instrumental during the first 12 years of the alliance, says Zigbee, helping it expand from a small collection of companies and a single standard to several hundred members, leading alliance events and marketing.
“I have known and worked alongside both Michelle and Krista for many years now,” said Tobin Richardson, Zigbee president & CEO. “I am elated to welcome them into the alliance, and to have our staff and members tap into the trove of expertise and energy they bring.”
