Helen Robinson quits Microsoft

No word on replacement

Microsoft New Zealand managing director Helen Robinson is leaving the company. In a statement released on 21 September, Robinson announced she would officially leave Microsoft on 30 October 2007 to seek “new business challenges” after two years with the company.

Robinson joined Microsoft in 2005 as small and midsize business and partner director and took over from Ross Peat as managing director in July 2006.

In her statement, Robinson says she has achieved what she set out to do in her role, which was to invoke change, grow the company’s business and strengthen its corporate citizenship contributions. “After having accomplished some of most exciting challenges in my career, I feel it is now time for me to move forward and review opportunities that will enable me to continue to impact the pace of change across our industry,” she says.

In the same statement, Microsoft regional director Emilio Umeoka said under Robinson the local subsidiary “grew at an accelerated pace, the company’s image and reputation in New Zealand has improved.”

Robinson began her IT career in 1982 and was Australia New Zealand vice president for CRM software vendor Pivotal Corporation before joining Microsoft.

No replacement for Robinson has been announced. NZ Reseller News
