Austin McChord

Founder and CEO
Austin McChord is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Datto, the world's leading provider of IT solutions delivered though managed service providers (MSPs). He launched the company in 2007 from a basement in Norwalk, Connecticut, with the mission to bring best-in-class data protection solutions to underserved small and mid-sized businesses. By selling exclusively through partnerships with MSPs, Datto has experienced unparalleled growth in the US and internationally. In late 2017, Datto was acquired by Vista Equity Partners and merged with Autotask Corporation. McChord serves as CEO of the combined entity, which is committed to offering partners an unrivaled range of IT business knowledge, services and products.

A graduate and a trustee of the Rochester Institute of Technology, as well as last year's commencement speaker, McChord is the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions. He appeared on Forbes Magazine’s 30 under 30 list in 2015, was named an Ernst & Young Technology Entrepreneur of the Year in 2016, and earned recognition as one of the nation's top 50 philanthropists in 2017 by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. McChord holds several patents, and is an in-demand keynote speaker at various technology conferences, most notably DattoCon, which he headlines each year.
