Microsoft Philippines appoints first female Managing Director


Okay, okay, so we kind of lied about the Microsoft Logo being the only Microsoft related news today. Surely you’ll all forgive us for that little fib, especially when you hear about this: Microsoft Philippines has appointed Karrie Ilagan as the first female Managing Director ever. Miss Ilagan will be promoted from her current Enterprise Sales Director role and will drive strategic partnerships and alliancesin the Philippines and grow the sales and marketing operations for Microsoft in the country.

“I believe that there are still a large number of Filipino companies that can achieve global competitiveness by enhancing their IT capabilities that are focused on empowering people. The latest data from World Economic Forum ranks Philippines 75thglobally in terms of national competitiveness.I’m certain that with the right combinationof technology, education and appropriate government initiatives, Microsoft Philippines can make a valuable contribution to the development of the country,” said Ilagan.
