Datto Partner Awards News Release – DattoCon 2019

ThinkGard Takes Home Golden Datto Award at DattoCon19

Pelham, Alabama, June 26, 2019– ThinkGard, LLC today announced the company took home the Unites States Pioneer of The Year Award at DattoCon19, Datto’s seventh annual partner conference that welcomed more than 2,900 attendees from 24 countries around the globe. Each year, the Golden Datto awards are presented to the best of the best among Datto’s partner community. This year, the awards were given across nine categories recognizing a range of talented, world-class MSPs.

This award recognizes the partner that is blazing a new path for Datto, specifically when it comes to utilizing Datto’s Marketing Development Funds Program to help build brand awareness. This Partner participated in the program and developed a plan of action for recruiting new clients and growing their business overall. Many factors play a role in building a successful marketing event, and this Partner clearly separates themselves as a Pioneer of The Year. ThinkGard’s ROI from the events they held well exceeded any expectations.

“Our partners are critical to the small and medium-sized business community, and we’re proud to honor the top performing partners with the Golden Datto awards at the event each year,” said Rob Rae, Vice President of Business Development at Datto. “We’re so excited for ThinkGard for earning the Pioneer of The Year award and demonstrating their commitment to growing their business and helping their clients succeed.”

“Last year we took home US Partner of the year and we thought that it couldn’t get any better than this but, to take home an award for our marketing efforts of course surprised and pleased us beyond belief, said Lesilie Leonard, VP of Sales & Marketing at ThinkGard. “People in the managed services space don’t typically focus as much on the marketing aspect of the business but with Datto’s Marketing Development Fund program their partners would be insane not to use it! We focused mostly on educating both business leaders and their IT Directors on how they can avoid being victims of ransomware. The response has been phenomenal. Datto makes it possible for us to bring more Tech events to the Birmingham Metro Area. In fact, we’ve got another Datto sponsored event in Birmingham AL coming up in August.”

About ThinkGard

ThinkGard, unlike other managed service technology companies who include backup & disaster recovery as part of a larger complex offering, ThinkGard’s backup & disaster recovery as a service (DRaas) is all they do. IT departments who must manage changing and competing priorities and often times disaster recovery management and planning gets left behind. ThinkGard allows IT teams to focus on other critical parts of the business.
