Previous Datto CTO Robert Petrocelli

Datto CTO Robert (Bob) Petrocelli has still left the MSP technological know-how company. He joins previous CEO Tim Weller as the initially two CXOs to exit the business enterprise now that Kaseya has concluded the $6.2 billion buyout of Datto.

Petrocelli had been outlined as an govt crew member on Datto’s website as of June 22, 2022. His photo and bio have since been replaced by Ken Ringdahl, senior VP of program engineering and infrastructure. Ringdahl joined Datto from Veeam in December 2019.

Kaseya closed the Datto acquisition on June 23, 2022. On that working day, Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola vowed to drive financial investment, innovation and integrations — when also slicing Datto’s list price ranges an typical of 10% on new solution buys. It’s challenging to measure if or how the list value cuts will supply genuine financial savings to MSPs, but Kaseya points to a historical past of successful acquisitions and MSP husband or wife results below.

Meanwhile, Datto Senior VP of Business Progress Rob Rae was quoted together with Voccola when the sale to Kaseya shut — a key transfer designed to guarantee MSPs that the consumer is committed to ongoing spouse achievement. ChannelE2E does not know if Rae has a extended-expression work contract with Kaseya.
