Norwalk, Conn (February 24, 2015) – Datto, the leading provider of comprehensive data backup, recovery and business continuity solutions, announces today that Rob Rae, Vice President of Business Development, has been named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. This annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners.

This is Rae’s second consecutive year on the influential list. In only two years at Datto, Rae has helped lead the company to prominence in the Channel. Under his tutelage, the Datto partner base has doubled in size thanks in part to a revamped Datto Partner Program. With a tiered structure, the Datto Partner Program helps MSPs grow their businesses through educational opportunities and comprehensive resources such as the popular RTO calculator, and serves as an aspirational platform for greater Partner growth and incentives. The 15-year IT veteran oversees all roadshow initiatives and events including the annual Datto Partner Conference, which has quickly become one of the leading, must-attend IT events in the Channel.

As Datto’s diligent road warrior, Rae can be seen at most Channel and IT events evangelizing the importance for business continuity, connecting one-on-one with Datto Partners and sharing how Datto’s Total Data Protection solutions deliver the best possible option for eliminating downtime for businesses and recurring revenue for MSPs, VARs and IT Business owners, alike.

“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “I am humbled to be recognized among my Channel colleagues on the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs list,” stated Rae. “It’s an exciting time to be part of the Channel, and I love the opportunity to work with so many fantastic MSPs. The best part of my job is witnessing the explosive growth our Datto Partners are having. I’m honored to work in and contribute to the Channel community.” The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
