Leaving Microsoft…

imageAfter an amazing 10 years, I am resigning from Microsoft to join RES as the Sr Director Global Product Marketing, based here in the Redmond area.  I am really excited to join some friends and colleagues from my time in Redmond at an exciting company entering the US Market with force.

RES technology allows organizations to manage and deliver secure, personalized and compliant desktops independent of the underlying computing infrastructure –  thin clients, virtual desktops, physical desktops, or server-based computing environments.  They are a member of the System Center Alliance, and have strong partnerships with Microsoft, Citrix and VMWare. 

Its been a ton of fun at Microsoft.  Joining in the UK in MCS as an infrastructure consultant, then as a Windows Technical Specialist, and then moving to Redmond to join the Product team.  It has been successful, challenging and rewarding working for the largest software vendor in the world and I cherish the experiences and friends I have made.

My last day in Building 44 is Friday June 24th.  My first day at RES is the following Monday June 27th.  While my Microsoft email address will cease to exist, I can still be reached through my Hotmail, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter

    Said to hear you are leaving Microsoft and the System Center marketing team. But I wish you all the best in your new job at RES Software.

    In the end it is a small world and perhaps we meet again. Wish you all the best, good luck!

    Quite shocked when you told us this on the MVP call yesterday Jeff because you do an amazing job at Microsoft. Good luck in the new role and many, many thanks for all of the help you’ve given us in the time I’ve known you and keep in touch when you get to RES as would be interested in finding out more about what they do.

    Jeff, all the best in the new job at RES, I am sure MS will miss you. I’ll be watching RES with a keener eye now!
