Today, we are excited to share that Gavriella Schuster has been named the new Corporate Vice President for Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Group (WPG). Schuster has more than two decades of experience with Microsoft, and most recently as general manager for WPG. In her words:
“There has never been a more exciting time to help our partners capitalize on the explosive demand for cloud services,” Schuster says. “Our partners are vital in helping us deliver on our promise to customers, and I’m deeply committed to helping them build successful businesses in support of our mutual customers.”
During her 20-year Microsoft career, Schuster has successfully managed and deployed program and product initiatives as well as licensing, pricing and go-to-market strategies. During her tenure she has delivered consistently high business growth through the commercial segments, ranging from small businesses to global enterprises.
At Microsoft, Schuster has led sales and marketing teams across the Server and Cloud business, the Windows Client Commercial business, Enterprise Services, licensing sales and marketing, field business development, training initiative development, segment marketing, worldwide partner marketing and training strategies, and worldwide operations. Through all of her experiences, partners have been at the core.
Phil Sorgen, who was in the role previously, recently accepted a new role at Microsoft as corporate vice president of the U.S. Enterprise and Partner Group.
Join us in Toronto, Canada, from July 10-14 for the Worldwide Partner Conference to hear more from Gavriella and other great leaders about the new technology innovations, channel investments and partnerships we’re driving to help partners maximize their profitability and build recurring revenue streams.
