GoTo, the all-in-one business communications and IT support and management platform, today announced the promotion of Paddy Srinivasan to President and Chief Executive Officer. In his role as Chief Product and Technology Officer, Srinivasan has been a driving force behind GoTo’s recent transformation, and platform unification. He succeeds Board member Mike Kohlsdorf, who has served as CEO since January.
“Paddy has played a pivotal role in building GoTo’s vision to make IT easy and the associated innovation of GoTo Connect and GoTo Resolve to enable SMB success,” said Kohlsdorf. “Paddy and I have worked in close collaboration for several years, and I believe he is uniquely positioned to see GoTo through this pivotal moment of accelerated growth and product innovation.”
Srinivasan has 25 years of product and leadership experience, all of which are centered around driving technologies forward to meet the challenges of both today and the future. He first joined GoTo, then known as LogMeIn, in 2013 as General Manager with responsibility for product strategy, strategic partnerships, and customer success. Srinivasan went on to serve as General Manager of Data, Machine Learning Platform Services at Amazon Alexa AI before returning to GoTo in 2020 as Chief Product and Technology Officer. Earlier in his career, Srinivasan was the Founder and CEO of Opstera, a cloud monitoring and management start-up that was acquired by Avanade, a Microsoft-Accenture joint venture.
“SMBs are entering yet another crucial moment in the health of their businesses and at GoTo, we are uniquely positioned to help them stay connected with who matters most – their employees and customers,” said Srinivasan. “I am incredibly proud of the work our teams have done to accelerate GoTo on our mission to make IT easy. I am excited for all that is ahead as we work with our partners to help our customers navigate obstacles while protecting their most essential connections and revenue.”
