Dynamics GP veteran David Musgrave leaves Microsoft, re-launches private consultancy

After more than 13 years, David Musgrave is leaving his position as Microsoft's Dynamics GP Escalation Engineer in the Asia Pacific region - but not voluntarily.

Musgrave - along with about 18,000 other Microsoft employees - has been let go as part of CEO Satya Nadella's plan to streamline the company.

Since his team has been shrinking over the last few years, Musgrave said he wasn't surprised to hear that support for Asia Pacific for the Microsoft Dynamics GP product was now going to be handled out of the Fargo office and that his role as Escalation Engineer in Asia Pacific was no longer required.

What to say

David leaving MS is definitely a loss to MS as rightly told by Vaidhyanathan Mohan.

David, The GP globe would be definitely looking forward for your new venture in GP.

Microsoft Ecosystem Loss

Downsizing David Musgrave's team and then, David himself, is a terrible move by the lack-of-management team at Microsoft.

Microsoft has already cut out hundreds of GP VAR's. Who's next? Errol, Pam, etc.?

These events continue to decrease or evaporate our confidence in Microsoft's so-called "commitment" to Dynamics GP.
