PagerDuty Names Timm Hoyt to Lead Global Channel, Alliances

PagerDuty has announced Timm Hoyt will lead its global partner and alliances organization as vice president of partnerships, working directly with PagerDuty’s product and sales team to increase partnership-driven revenue, according to a statement released by the company. It seems Hoyt's mandate will be to further transform PagerDuty's go-to-market strategy to one that relies more heavily on channel partners, systems integrators and ISVs.

The digital operations management company enables customers to automate their product, software and development operations management processes and capabilities by integrating with observability, monitoring and management tools as well as operations technology, and currently boasts more than 500 integrations, according to the statement.

He has worked for several years in EMEA, as well as Japan, South Korea and North America and Latin America. As part of his responsibilities at PagerDuty, Hoyt will oversee partnership relations for channel partners, cloud providers, ecosystem alliances, managed service providers and system integrators, according to the statement.
