The firm’s current head of the partner programme, Patrick McCue, is moving to the role of vice president of Partner Sales for the LastPass partner programme, which will now operate as a standalone cloud security business.

“As we look towards the future of both GoTo and LastPass it is clear that we need industry experts to lead partner programmes at both businesses,” commented Mike Kohlsdorf, President and CEO of GoTo.

“Today, I’m excited to welcome Michael Day to GoTo. With years of experience in the UCaaS and software space, Michael’s skillset positions him well to continue to grow effective partner programmes for all GoTo products. For the LastPass business, Patrick McCue’s past experience at security companies made him our natural pick to lead the LastPass partner programme.”

Day brings more than 20 years of channel and sales experience to GoTo and spent the last five years at unified communications and collaboration (UCC) provider RingCentral. Before that, the channel veteran spent 13 years at SCRAM Systems, a provider of software solutions for the criminal justice and government industry.

Commenting on his appointment to the new role, Day said he saw a “tremendous opportunity to join the new GoTo”.

“While an established player in the remote workspace, the recent rebrand to GoTo and simplified portfolio of collaboration and remote support tools brings incredible differentiation to a crowded market needing a refresh,” he explained.

“I look forward to working with the team to explore new possibilities to grow our partner programme globally and separate GoTo as the clear leader in the space.”
