LogicMonitor, provider of SaaS-based unified observability platform for enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs), has hired Taggart Matthiesen as Chief Product Officer.
What does Matthiesen bring to LogicMonitor?
Matthiesen will oversee product strategy and their unified observability platform, LM Envision, including product management, user experience (UX) and data science. In this role, he will be responsible for enhancing LogicMonitor’s ability to provide companies with the full visibility and insights they need to cost-effectively maximise their IT environment’s resilience, performance and adaptability – key elements for business success in today’s digital economy.
Matthiesen joins LogicMonitor from Lyft, where as VP of Product he helped build and lead Lyft’s autonomous driving initiatives. Prior to this, he held product leadership positions across Lyft’s pay platform, identity & fraud, service & support, mapping, and Lyft for Business.
Prior to Lyft, Matthiesen served as a Group Product Manager at Twitter, where he created and led the company’s Data Product Group. Before joining Twitter, he was Senior Director of Product at Salesforce, leading teams across Salesforce’s developer and analytics platforms.
“Observability tools have always been key to delivering great products. From monitoring top level metrics, like ride requests and ETAs, to more detailed diagnostics and insights, like identifying fraudulent vectors or outdated turn restrictions – they are vital to delivering a resilient platform and providing the best possible user experience,” said Matthiesen.
“I see great growth potential in the observability space and LogicMonitor is in a unique position within that space, with an incredible team and product,” Matthiesen further said.
