Windy LaMarr Named One of Houston’s ‘Women Who Mean Business’

We often talk about how people make everything we do at Liongard possible.

Windy LaMarr, our Director of Product Management, is a team member who exemplifies that and makes our company a better place for everyone.

We’re not the only ones who think so. The Houston Business Journal has honored Windy as part of its 2022 Women Who Mean Business Awards. The publication recognized the honorees during a luncheon on Oct. 20.

Windy has more than 22 years of experience in the industry. She’s helped organizations in the commercial software space translate ideas into revenue and leveraged more than two decades of technology acumen and leadership to help businesses accelerate products to market.

“Windy loves the challenge of complex problem solving and, in her role, she’s helped define and implement processes and develop products that support rapid strategic growth,” VP of Product, Matt Miller said. “Working at a high-growth company like Liongard, Windy has a wealth of opportunity to put her ability to ‘speak different languages’ — forecast, translate, develop and align market and client needs into executable strategies – and translate them into strategic actions across the business that have tangible results and ROI.”

While the technology industry is largely male-dominated, Windy has been a ground-breaker throughout her career. It explains why she regularly competes in Ironman competitions; in fact, Windy will miss the ceremony because she’ll be out competing in her sixth Ironman competition.

Early in her career, Windy was a technical sales engineer for software that ran on a legacy computing platform that was almost 30 years old when she entered the industry.

“At the time, and to this day, I consider it an accomplishment that I was so young and new to technology, yet I learned and excelled working on a relatively antiquated platform,” Windy said.

At Liongard, Windy led the team that launched an industry-first: Endpoint Visibility. It has expanded our Total Addressable Market (TAM) and offers greater access to mission-critical data and insights that MSPs need to be successful.

With this innovation, MSPs always run in a known state, proactively detect changes to stay one step ahead and automate mundane tasks to give their teams back time.

“Everyone has something to offer — this is especially important when working on a high-functioning team in a demanding industry,” Windy said. “This is compounded when considering that the MSP vendor space is heavily male-dominated.

“I work hard to ensure every voice on my team is heard – male or female, young or old,” Windy added. “I seek out informal mentorship opportunities where I can have the most impact — such as mentoring a younger team member who is new to product management or someone newer to the technology industry, knowing it can be hard to overcome many of the barriers in the field.”

Outside of Liongard, Windy, a native Texan, is involved in the local community.

For the past 13 years, Windy has served as a Committeeman on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s World Championship BBQ, and for three years, she served as committee Captain. Since 1957, the Rodeo has presented more than 20,000 scholarships totaling $260 million.
