“Small number of roles” affected by Microsoft restructures

Microsoft New Zealand says a very small number of roles have been affected by reviews of its organisational structure, carried out in May and November.

A Microsoft spokesperson says the company has had to review its structure “as a result of the current economic climate, tighter budgets and decreased revenue.”

The exact number of roles affected by the restructure was not disclosed, however the spokesperson says a number of new roles have also been created and a number of positions have been “repurposed” to “achieve some efficiencies and support the goals of the New Zealand subsidiary”.

Meanwhile, national technology officer Brett Roberts has confirmed he will leave the vendor at the end of January 2010 after 12 years there.

He says his departure was prompted by a decision to move the role to Wellington instead of Auckland.

Microsoft is currently recruiting for his replacement.

Roberts has held a number of roles at Microsoft including innovation director, chief technology officer, platform strategy manager, OEM manager and Asia Pacific licensing manager. He is also listed on Linkedin.com as the founder of web-based SMS marketing service 842.
