Your Hosts

Jim Lippie

SVP, MSP Success

Jim Lippie

The MSP industry has gone through a massive transformation over the last decade. From mergers and acquisitions to the rise in private equity firms, this industry has seen it all. Not to forget, the birth of “the cloud” and the increasing cybersecurity risks.

Jim has been at the forefront witnessing these changes as the CEO of the Thrive Networks (an MSP acquired by Staples), the President of IndependenceIT (IIT), and as the founder of an MSP consultancy, Clarity Channel Advisors.

Currently, Jim serves as GM and Senior Vice President at Kaseya. He oversees the company’s global customer community and is responsible for partner development.

Dan Tomaszewski

VP of Channel Success & Powered Services

Dan Tomaszewski

Bringing over 10 years of technology and MSP experience to his position, Dan Tomaszewski currently oversees the Channel Success, Powered Services Team and Community for all of Kaseya companies and MSP Partners.

He embodies a core concept of the Connecting IT podcast — authenticity. Dan has been in the trenches we talk about. He knows the objections that MSPs face because he has faced them himself as the head of an MSP. Dan’s real specialty, however, is closing new business, which lead him to his current role at Kaseya — coaching MSPs over the finish line with Powered Services.
