MSP, CSP Pioneer David Powell Joins LogicMonitor

David Powell

TekLinks VP David Powell, well-known within MSP and CSP circles, has joined LogicMonitor as GM of the company's service provider business, according to his LinkedIn profile. Powell is one of the rare IT channel executives who has successfully navigated the VAR, MSP and CSP waves -- essentially blending all three models into a total solutions provider approach.

Powell's jump to LogicMonitor arrives three months after the company received $130 million to accelerate its business. LogicMonitor has gained substantial momentum among midmarket MSPs that are seeking scalable, on-demand offerings that either complement or fully replace traditional RMM (remote monitoring and management) platforms. However, LogicMonitor generally does not position itself as an RMM tool.

While many RMM platform providers continue to focus on traditional server and PC management, LogicMonitor has pushed forward with deeper infrastructure monitoring for cloud, DevOps and other use cases.

We'll be checking in with Powell to learn more about his role at LogicMonitor.
