Axcient Announce David Bennett as CEO to Accelerate Growth

By Arti Loftus

The Denver-based software company, Axcient - a leader in business availability and cloud migration solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) have recently announced that David Bennett, the former Chief Revenue Officer at IT security company, Webroot will be taking the role of Chief Executive Officer, effective as of March 4, 2019.

Axcient protects businesses data and continuity in the event of security breaches, human error, and natural disasters through a range of products including Replibit, BRC, CloudFinder, Anchor, Fusion, and the Axcient Cloud, in turn enabling MSPs to build secure technology stacks for their customers.

Bennett has a proven track record as a business leader with over 20 years of experience in the sales, marketing, business development, financial management fields, as well as global operations leadership in both developed and companies looking to grow and increase their reach. His past experience with international companies such as Lenovo, Sony, and Kingston make for an impressive resume as he takes Axcient to the next level.

“David has a strong track record of leading successful transformations within the IT industry, and we are excited to welcome him to Axcient,” said Eric White, President at Axcient. “He has the knowledge, leadership, and experience that will help Axcient partners accelerate growth and gain new momentum in a thriving industry.”

There are many factors driving the global managed services market as it continues to grow at an extraordinary pace - expected to rise from $108.5 billion in 2018 to $282 billion by 2023. The need for specialized MSPs who are able to offer cloud-based managed services is one such major factor.

Businesses are beginning to realize the benefits of the managed services market. Managed services allow a company to hand over part of its network infrastructure without giving up control over their critical business operations allowing them to focus on the core company vision. With the rising number of incidents in data theft and cybercrime in addition to the large amounts of digital data being generated daily with the constant need to secure the data, is a major driver urging companies to adopt managed services. These rising security concerns, as well as new regulatory compliance laws, are increasing adoption amongst various industry verticals like banking, insurance, retail, IT and telecommunications. The increasing trend of bring your own device (BYOD) has also been a considerable factor in the growth of the global managed services market.

“With the high-growth opportunities in cloud-based managed services, I am energized about the dynamic ways we can help MSPs develop new business ventures.” Says Bennett. “I am excited to lead such an outstanding team at Axcient as we continue to build a channel-centric company uniquely focused on solving the challenges of MSPs. Together, we look forward to reaching new milestones.”
