Taggart Matthiesen has been named as LogicMonitor's new Chief Product Officer (CPO).
Matthiesen will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of product strategy for the company and its unified observability platform, LM Envision, including product management, user experience (UX) and data science.
He joined the role after working at Lyft as its Vice President of Product, where he helped build and lead Lyft's autonomous driving initiatives. He also held product leadership positions across Lyft's pay platform, identity & fraud, service & support, mapping, and Lyft for Business.
"Taggart has a proven track record for building successful enterprise and consumer SaaS product teams that combine deep technical know-how with the empathy to fully understand and anticipate users' needs," says Christina Kosmowski, CEO, LogicMonitor.
"With Taggart joining LogicMonitor's leadership team and heading product, we will be able to integrate innovations into our observability platform faster, continuing to set our customers up for success in an ever-changing tech landscape."
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 building and delivering great products. From monitoring top-level metrics, such as ride requests and ETAs, to more detailed diagnostics and insights, like identifying fraudulent vectors or outdated turn restrictions – observability tools are essential to delivering a resilient platform and providing the best possible user experience," says Matthiesen.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."
