Microsoft CVP of Azure marketing Julia White is leaving to SAP » OnMSFT.com
Julia White, a Microsoft veteran and currently CVP for product marketing for Azure, developer tools, and servers, is leaving to join SAP (via ZDNet). The German company, known for its ERP solutions, has hired White as its new Chief Marketing and Solutions Officer and a new member of the management team.
This is the second high-profile departure from Redmond this week after Brad Anderson, CVP of Commercial Management Experiences, left Microsoft to join Qualtrics as President of Products & Services. Anderson worked at Microsoft for 20 years while White joined the company 18 years ago.
According to ZDNet, Microsoft has named Azure Vice President John Chirapurath as interim marketing director while the company is looking for candidates to replace White. In the past few years we have seen the executive perform at many annual Microsoft conferences such as Ignite and Inspire, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
