2021 Channel Chiefs: The 50 Most Influential

Rick Whiting

In celebration of CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs, here are 50 leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships.

Datto

Rob Rae

SVP, Business Development

Datto was in the spotlight in 2020 when the data storage and backup system developer went public in October under the ticker symbol “MSP.”

Keeping in touch with solution provider partners was Rae’s top goal in 2020: Throughout the year he did no fewer than 40 keynotes—both in person and virtual—and Rae and his team worked to coordinate partner engagement through hundreds of partner events.

Datto held an MSP Tech Day, a quarterly cross-department event to update the channel on MSP technology developments. And the company continued to conduct its MSP State of the Market survey that generates data used for Datto’s keynotes and marketing content.
