Employee Spotlight: Robert Hatcher III

Robert Hatcher, Global PPC Manager at LogicMonitor

Title: Global PPC Manager

How long have you been working at LogicMonitor?

About 3 months. I started this March.

Why did you want to work at LogicMonitor?

An employee here, Jim, told me about the role and team. It sounded like a great opportunity. I’ve always wanted to solve big problems with a talented team, and I get that chance here at LM. 

What has your experience at LogicMonitor been like so far? 

It wasn’t the usual experience since I started the week before shelter in place orders, but it’s been great nonetheless. My team is awesome, and we’re working hard to build trust during WFH. 

Was there a certain moment in your career that you felt was a turning point?

Working at Adlucent here in Austin was special. I was able to run PPC accounts for several public e-commerce companies and it was a blast. I was traveling to clients to present ideas to expand our impact on their business, and also listening to what they needed at that time. I had my first great boss there, and I began to see how high my professional potential is. Adlucent helped me be more confident and gave me several opportunities to push myself. 

We’ve been working remotely for 3 months now. Any tips for staying productive and keeping a good work-life balance?

Stay flexible. Sometimes I’m interrupted by our kid or dogs, I’ve learned to roll with the punches. Our team is also very aware of keeping limits and avoiding workday creep. 

Before working at LogicMonitor, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I managed a wine store in San Antonio for 3 years. We featured only Texas-made products, and it was a blast. We had visitors from all 50 US states, almost every Canadian province, and several countries, and it’s hard to replicate the memories we had there. 

What is your favorite restaurant for take-out in Austin?

P. Terry’s. Sometimes you need a burger and fries. And lemonade. 

If you could only bring 3 things with you to a deserted island, what would you bring? 

  1. Satellite Phone
  2. Tent
  3. Water Filtration System

What is your favorite quote?

“The best-laid schemes of mice and men / Often go awry.” I actually enjoyed this book (Of Mice and Men) in high school and this quote is one step above pure nihilism. Sometimes things happen no matter how well we plan. That’s okay. 

What is your favorite book?

Jurassic Park. My dad, brother, and I just started reading all of Crichton’s books. There’s something enjoyable about plausible science fiction, and I loved the movies too.
