Government customers dealing with Microsoft will have a new director to speak to, with Michael Gration taking up the post.
The director of public sector group role was previously held by Pip Marlow, who was recently promoted to managing director of Microsoft Australia.
Gration has been working in the public sector group since he joined the vendor in 2006. He has 20 years experience in working with Government customers.
In a release, Gration said “This new role brings an exciting opportunity for me professionally, since it enables me to widen my engagement with all levels of government, from health reforms to educational IT initiatives.
“On a personal level, having two children of my own, I firmly believe that technology can further educational transformation, helping the way students learn and grow. Microsoft already has a strong portfolio of education programs underway in Australia today and I look forward to being a guiding part.”
