Datto appoints Tim Weller as CEO

Datto has announced the appointment of Tim Weller as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Weller succeeds Founder Austin McChord who got away from the daily management of the company but continues as a board member.

A Spokesdatto said that Weller will assume the position immediately, providing a seamless transition from his interim role of leading Datto’s Executive Team over the last two months.

Weller joined Datto in 2017 as chief financial officer (CFO) before stepping into the chief executive role. The company said Weller has been instrumental in leading its day-to-day operations, establishing global go-to-market strategies, and playing a pivotal role in the merger of Datto and Autotask.

The company said that Weller brings over 30 years of experience, including C-suite experience with public and private companies globally. He also has specific experience in growing tech companies. Tim knows the MSP channel well, he understands how instrumental it is to Datto, and is fully committed to it.

Weller is expected to continue with an open platform strategy, despite the trend of MSP software companies acquiring their independent software vendor (ISV) partners to bolster their portfolios.
