Watson departure from Microsoft Partner Program

For my colleagues on the Channel Builder/Solution Finder online marketing tool we built for the Microsoft Partner Program, here's an update on the executive sponsor, Allison L. Watson, on her departure from the program:

  1. Allison's letter to the partner community on her move within Microsoft;
  2. Microsoft's press release; and
  3. Allison's updated bio page.

Allison mandate from Steve Balmer to build Channel Builder at lightspeed necessitated her direct involvement in the project and resulted in our selection, in her words, as her trusted advisor. We all wish her well in her new position.

Only partner program members can access the Partner Channel Builder tool itself.
