Datto Expands Leadership to Drive Success of Global MSP Partner Ecosystem

Key Senior Executives to Support Company Growth

Datto Inc., the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through the managed service provider (MSP) channel, announced several key leadership positions. To help guide the company along its path of continued global growth, Datto has appointed a new Chief Sales Officer, Managing Director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Customer Experience Officer (CXO).

To establish and drive Datto’s global go-to-market strategy and execution for all Datto solutions, the company welcomes†Sanjay Singhas Chief Sales Officer. Singh brings more than 20 years of operational and general management experience and is focused on growing the business across the globe. Prior to joining Datto, he was Chief Operating Officer at Unbxd, Inc., a product-discovery platform that uses artificial intelligence to anticipate and influence buying behaviors. Singh also worked for Akamai Technologies for 18 years, most recently as Senior Vice President of Global Operations and previously held roles in sales, services, and support.

Datto has appointed†Mark Simon†as the new Managing Director of EMEA, where he will lead in a region that has experienced growth of more than 1,600 MSP partners in the last 15 months. In this role, Simon is responsible for sales strategy and execution as well as leadership of Datto’s growing EMEA presence. Simon joins Datto with 20 years of international experience, including 14 years at Toluna, a technology provider of digital consumer insights, where he held various leadership roles, including Managing Director, North America, Managing Director, UK and Global Head of Products.

Singh and Simon join†Chris McCloskey, who joined Datto in late 2018 as CXO, leading Datto’s world-class global customer success, technical support, customer experience, and implementation teams. McCloskey’s teams are focused on providing award-winning service to Datto’s global partner base. Prior to joining Datto, McCloskey served as Finastra’s Chief Operating Officer for the Americas and several other roles, including Global Head of Solutions and Field Operations, and Global Head of Sales Operations.

“Our partners have told us, and we agree, that now more than ever, it’s a great time to be an MSP. We see promising growth for our partners and we anticipate that our new executive leaders will help shape and deliver on Datto’s vision to meet those market demands,” said Tim Weller, CEO at Datto. “More than 18 months after our merger with Autotask, we’re still growing our ecosystem. We signed on more than 1,500 new partners since the start of the year and continue to help them grow their revenue year-over-year.”

Gartner predicts that the overall external IT spend of small-to-medium business (SMB) will reach $1.1 trillion by 2020 and that SMBs invest a higher proportion of IT spend on external IT solutions and services than large enterprises. Datto’s key hires will help the company stay ahead of the growing demands placed on MSPs globally to provide these services to their SMB clients. Today, Datto:

  • Continues to invest in talent, growing staff year-over-year to more than 1,600 employees.
  • Has facilities that span 22 offices in nine countries, with four new office expansions celebrated in the last year.
  • Serves more than 500,000 SMBs across more than 130 countries through partnerships with more than 15,000 MSPs.
  • Protects more than 500 petabytes of end-user data, a nearly 15% increase from 2018.
