New Channel Chief On The Record
Gavriella Schuster, a Microsoft veteran of 21 years, is set to take over as the software giant's new global channel chief, a role she has been filling in an interim capacity for the last month.
The new corporate vice president of Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Group spoke to CRN about overseeing and facilitating Microsoft solution providers as they migrate the world's largest customer base to Windows 10. She also talked about her plans for leading Microsoft's channel as it continues the transition from focusing on large projects to selling subscription cloud services, as well as what it's like stepping into a role vacated by her mentor of more than a decade, Phil Sorgen.
