Muckleston says ‘nyet’ to Moscow and ‘oui’ to Paris

Muckleston says ‘nyet’ to Moscow and ‘oui’ to Paris

MICROSOFT’S Paul Muckleston is not heading to Moscow, as previously reported.

He will instead be swapping Auckland for Paris.

Based on information supplied by Microsoft New Zealand, Reseller News reported in a recent edition of its ChannelBeat newsletter that Muckleston, the former mid-sized businesses and partner director at Microsoft New Zealand, was being dispatched to Moscow to take up the role as director of business management and strategy for Microsoft’s Central and Eastern Europe region.

However, Muckleston will in fact be performing this role from Paris, where his new immediate manager Vahe Torossian, Microsoft’s vice president for EMEA, Central and Eastern Europe, is based.

“Most of Central Europe is done from Paris, but we also have an office in Munich to cover Eastern Europe,” says Muckleston.

Muckleston is in France this week hunting for an apartment and says he is excited about the promotion.

“I am about 90% excited and 10% apprehensive,” he says.

Muckleston’s local role has been split in two with Helen Robinson taking over as director of the SMB and partner group and Brent Colbert as director of marketing.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is still on the hunt for a replacement for partner group manager Steve Haddock, who leaves this month to become distributor and system builder group manager at Microsoft in the UK, based in Reading.
