Microsoft's WPC Wrap Up: Visions Of The Cloud


Allison Watson's Swan Song As Channel Chief

Channel chief Allison Watson, who is taking on a new job within Microsoft, took the stage in the Verizon Center during the Monday keynotes to bid farewell to the company’s channel partners. Watson, Microsoft’s worldwide channel chief for eight years, is now corporate vice president of the Business and Marketing Organization in the U.S. while Jon Roskill, who previously held the post Watson has taken, is now the new channel chief.

Watson drew sustained applause when she said that being channel chief is likely the only opportunity she’ll get “to have a job that is this cool.”
