Following the recent rebrand, GoTo also announced the new GoTo Partner Network, which Michael Day will now lead in his new role. The enhanced program includes a greater global focus and more ways for the growing ecosystem of partners to bring in more customers and increase revenue.

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

Michael brings nearly 20 years of channel and sales experience to GoTo. Most recently Michael spent over five years at unified communications & collaboration (UCC) provider, RingCentral. Prior to RingCentral, Michael was at SCRAM Systems, the leading provider of software solutions for the criminal justice and government industry, where he worked for over 13 years.

“Having spent many years in the UCC space, I 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,” said Michael Day. “I look forward to working with the team to explore new possibilities to grow our partner program globally and separate GoTo as the clear leader in the space.”
