It was announced today by Datto that the BDR provider has hired Rob Rae to the position of VP of Business Development. Rae, who is known by most in the SMB channel for his work as VP of Partner Development at Level Platforms, will begin his tenure at Datto on Monday, August 5.
Upon joining Datto next month, Rae will be working to further develop synergy between Datto’s marketing and sales teams, which is something he will undoubtedly excel at; he comes to Datto with a very successful run for the last six years at Level Platforms to ensure the success of the company’s MSP partners. Aside from his work with LPI, Rob has more than 20 years of B2B experience within IT hardware and software sales.
As Datto’s new VP of Business Development Rae will also be working externally with Datto partners to help educate them on how to use Datto products and services to earn profit and successfully grow their business. “I am very excited to move from one strong Channel-focused organization to another Channel-focused organization,” Rae said in a press release issued today by Datto. “Datto is one of the fastest-growing vendors in the Solution Provider community and the growth opportunity for the Company and its Partners is massive. That is hugely appealing to me and I want to be a part of the continued, significant growth and development of the Channel.”
Stay tuned for more information on this story, as we will likely get a chance to speak with Rob prior to his last days at LPI.
