Datto appoints new CEO

Datto has found a new CEO. Tim Weller, who until now was active as COO, succeeds founder Austin McChord. McChord decided last autumn to transfer all the day-to-day management of the company, but remains active as a board member. Weller is now active as CEO.

Tim Weller takes over this position after having worked as interim manager of the Datto Executive Team for the past two months. I am honoured to be able to fulfil the role of CEO of Datto, says Weller in a statement. Although the company continues to grow, he makes it clear that it wants to continue its commitment to the MSP community.

Supplier of IT solutions

Datto is a supplier of IT solutions via managed service providers (MSPs). The company offers solutions for business continuity and disaster recovery, networking, business management, backup and synchronisation solutions, and has an extensive network of partners. Together they supply techniques to half a million companies in more than 130 countries.

Weller joined Datto in June 2017. There he began as Chief Financial Officer, then became President and Chief Operating Officer. In these positions, Weller led the day-to-day operations, developed international go-to-market strategies and played a major role in the merger of Datto and Autotask. He was also important for the success and growth of Datto. Weller has worked closely with management and the board of directors at Datto since its inception.

Over the past twenty years, Weller has also been active in various positions at management level. He was also CFO of two commercial companies in Boston: at EnerNOC, a clean energy technology company, and at Akamai where he led a team responsible for one of the best-performing IPOs ever. He also held positions as a financial research analyst, software developer, video game designer, angel investor and advisor to several CEOs of technology companies.
