Meet the Team

Would it be a bold statement to say that no other company is as passionate about security automation as we are? Maybe — but we’re a bold group of people. 

Built and supported by automation experts.
We proudly boast our team’s expertise in Ansible, because over half of our team helped to build Ansible as an open source project and Ansible as a company.

Justin Nemmers


As former GM of Ansible, Justin was instrumental to growing the Ansible business tenfold after the Red Hat’s acquisition. Through his product leadership, he drove Ansible adoption at scale within global commercial and public sector organizations. At MindPoint Group, Justin uses his product, marketing, and sales expertise to help identify new product and service opportunities to the market.

Ben Strauss

Business Development Manager

Ben was one of the original salespeople at Ansible. Post-acquisition, he continued to bring automation to a wide variety of global customers, enabling these customers to identify automation needs and build internal customer consensus, enabling organization-wide automation adoption.

George Nalen

Senior Automation Architect

George has been working in high-pressure engineering and support organizations for his entire career. He is a multidisciplined customer-focused talent focused on delivering exceptional customer value and a witty riposte. He is instrumental in designing and developing many of the Lockdown Enterprise automations.

Abby Costin

Marketing Manager

Abby got started with Ansible as North America lead for the Automation and Management campaign on the Red Hat Marketing team. Blown away by the simplicity and power of Ansible automation, Abby was eager to join the MindPoint Group team to help tell the world our story of security baseline automation.

David Federlein

Principal Product Architect

David built and ran the pre-acquisition Ansible support organization, and continued to be a senior member of the post-acquisition Ansible leadership team. As the MindPoint Group Principal Product Architect, he is responsible for designing, planning, and delivering Lockdown Enterprise’s superior capabilities. Amongst David's numerous talents: identifying and ramping up the best talent on the planet.
