David Powell, former vice president of TekLinks, has made a professional move to assist another tech service provider as its general manager.
Mr. Powell has been an astounding spokesperson for the tech community in Birmingham for quite some time. Although making this move will take him out of the TekLink’s operations, he is still able to provide value for our city.
LogicMonitor, located in Santa Barber, California, provides data monitoring to its clients. Powell will be traveling frequently to and from the headquarters as well as its Austin location. He will continue to be a resident in Birmingham.

“LogicMonitor is poised for next-level growth with its rapidly expanding Service Provider base and I am thrilled to be able to lend my industry expertise to help make that transformation happen,”

Within the past seven years, David Powell has helped grow TekLinks to be 20th out of the 100 most highly managed companies for 2016.
“But how will this benefit Birmingham?”
During Birmingham’s premiere tech festival, Sloss Tech, Mr. Powell was the moderator for the start up panel. This not only showcased his expertise/knowledge in business, but also showed how highly revered he is in the community. The status he has within Birmingham will continue to grow with this new venture.
Tech junkies in Birmingham, like myself, are pumped to see the change the Magic City can make for technology. We are working toward developing our city as the “Silicon Valley of the South”.
Although far fetch to some, this is our highest goal. In terms of LogicMonitor and David Powell, this will shine quite a spot light on our city as he represents his skills, and Bham, among tech giants of Cali.
