SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based infrastructure monitoring platform for agile and complex IT organizations, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named David Powell, GM of Managed Service Provider Business, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
David Powell joined LogicMonitor after acting as Vice President of Managed and Cloud Services at Teklinks, a leading Birmingham-based service provider. Leveraging years of experience in the industry, David brings tremendous insight to LogicMonitor, where he will develop and implement The Market Partner Program. “LogicMonitor has made a very strategic hire with David,” said Alex Brown, CRN advisor and CEO at 10th Magnitude, a leading Microsoft Azure services firm, adding, “Service Providers across the country seek David out for help in transforming their business based on the success he has had with the recurring revenue business model. He’s a strong, advocate for vendor programs that put the partner first."
LogicMonitor’s Market Partner Program – currently in beta with a small number of key strategic partners – will ultimately serve as the conduit for the company’s rapid expansion into the EMEA and AsiaPac markets. The knowledge and expertise that David brings with him from years in the channel partner community put him in the unique position to implement a program that is truly transformational for both partner and vendor. LogicMonitor’s unwavering commitment to partnership priority will be guaranteed with David at the helm of its partner program strategy.
“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”
Mike Lomonaco, Director of Marketing and Communications at Open Systems Technology named to the Elite 150 on CRN’s 2017 MSP 500, gave nod to David’s impressive reputation for execution of channel partner business strategy, “I have always been impressed by David’s ability to push for partner transformation by embracing new business models. In his role at LogicMonitor, he will be able to bring that same creative approach to the vendor side. SaaS-based companies are growing quickly and they need a creative approach to the channel to go with their evolving business models. David will bring that in a way that is both genuine and results-driven.”
