Sometimes the Universe is a wonderful place! I'm happy to announce that on July 2nd I will officially join the ranks of Microsoft. I have accepted the role of Director, Enterprise Collaboration & Solution Management for the Strategic Enterprise Services-IT group.
Based in Redmond, WA this amazing position puts me in a leadership role for the direction of Microsoft's own global SharePoint implementation. While working with world class developers,the product group and many others I'll be able to increase the level of collaboration and value through SharePoint services delivered to Microsoft employees around the world.
Even more exciting is the requirement to have the person in this role share that knowledge with Microsoft customers and partners. The teaching and SPUG leadership that I've been doing for years on top of my responsibilities at SKECHERS will now be a critical part of my job.
I could not be more thrilled to take on this challenge. We are at an important time in our technology evolution. I am enthusiastic about how the industry has implemented SharePoint but even more so about the future. Having the opportunity to expand on the great work that's already been done, both inside Microsoft and in the partner / client community is a dream come true.
Most importantly however I would not have been in the position to accept this job without the support of so many of you in the SharePoint & ECM community! Thank you for all you have done for me. I'm excited to have an even bigger platform from which to give back to the people who have so graciously accepted and supported me!
Onward & Upward! The Adventure Continues!
