Lakeside Software Welcomes New Chief Revenue and Chief Marketing Officers

With the rapid transformation of the distributed workforce and need for analytics and automation to cost-effectively improve the computing experience of employees, the demand for Lakeside’s digital experience monitoring (DEM) platform, SysTrack, is dramatically increasing. Widespread deployment of Lakeside’s platform in 20% of Global 500 accounts as well as the strong adoption of its cloud solution has further propelled Lakeside’s growth, driving the need to ramp up its go-to-market operations.

As Chief Revenue Officer, Eric Fischer will lead global field operations, including sales, channel, customer success, and professional services. Prior to Lakeside, Eric was a senior sales executive in multiple SaaS firms, most recently driving growth from $3 million to $360 million at Dynatrace and increasing recurring revenue by 3x at both Turbonomic and BitSight.

“I am excited to join Lakeside at this inflection point in the company’s history,” says Fischer. “Given the strength of our customer base and continued product innovations, I see a huge opportunity for Lakeside to be transformative in the industry. It’s going to be fun to build the team and contribute to the company’s growth.”

In the role of Chief Marketing Officer, Bill Hobbib will tap his deep experience in growth marketing, brand-building, product and industry marketing to drive strategy and execution across all of Lakeside’s marketing functions and teams — including demand generation, product marketing, analyst relations, public relations, branding, and partner/channel marketing. Most recently, Hobbib was SVP Marketing for enterprise AI leader, DataRobot, which recently placed #36 on the prestigious Forbes 100 list. During his tenure as marketing leader, the company doubled, was recognized as a category Leader in major analyst reports, and achieved record performance in pipeline building. His previous experiences include VP Product Marketing at Bullhorn and Oracle, and VP Marketing at ExaGrid Systems.

DeSantis, Florida election chief considering voter registration deadline after website failures

TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee are considering extending the voter registration deadline after the state’s website errors and glitches on Monday, the last day to register before the general election.

“This morning I met with Governor DeSantis to brief him on the status of the online voter registration system and the challenges we encountered last night due to unprecedented volume and traffic to our website,” Lee said in a prepared statement.

Lee also said her department, which oversees elections, was working to make sure the errors were an honest mistake and not an attack on the system.

“We’re exploring all options to ensure that all eligible registrants have the ability to register to vote and will work with our state and federal law-enforcement partners to ensure this was not a deliberate act against the voting process,” Lee said.

The errors and glitches prompted Democrats to call on DeSantis to extend the deadline.

“The deadline exists for a reason — and it is the right of every person in Florida who chooses to register to vote, to do so up until that deadline,” Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried stated in a letter to DeSantis asking him to extend the deadline by at least 24 hours.

DeSantis spokesman Fred Piccolo posted on Twitter than an announcement related to voter registration would be “coming soon.” DeSantis is scheduled to appear at an event in The Villages at noon Tuesday.

BRIC Chief Kristina Newman-Scott looks to offer free classes, TV programming during pandemic

By 2015 she was the director of culture and historic preservation for the whole state. In the role, she pushed back against a view of art as an uneconomical sector, instead finding ways it could support both artists and the economy.

It’s hard to think of an institution whose purpose and specialties would be a better fit for Newman-Scott than BRIC. One of the foremost arts organizations in the city, its focus spans the visual and performing arts, modern media and education. The leading presenter of free programming in the borough, BRIC is expressly focused on increasing public access to the arts.

It’s a mission that easily could’ve been challenged by the pandemic. Many of BRIC’s peers are facing existential questions. Institutions from the Met to the Brooklyn Museum have had to lay off workers. But BRIC hasn’t, Newman-Scott said.

“We unfortunately have become, as members of the creative economy, accustomed to being the first hit and hardest hit,” she said. “When there are budget cuts, you often see arts on the front line.”

Drawing on her previous work in government, Newman-Scott has partnered with the city Department of Education to ensure BRIC provides educational TV programming. The center also has offered free classes to various constituencies. Small-business leaders, for example, can learn the basics of digital media design.

Newman-Scott also led the first-ever remote BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn Festival. The virtual version of the event, typically held in Prospect Park, radically expanded its footprint, reaching 2.5 million people in more than 40 countries.

“All of those things are part of our day to day, but in this moment, it is important for our community to truly see us as a resource for them,” she said.
