Microsoft's Gavriella Schuster Now CVP of Worldwide Partner Group

Gavriella SchusterMicrosoft has named Gavriella Schuster its new Corporate Vice President for Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Group (WPG). Previously, she had served as the group's general manager, but stepped in as interim chief in May when Phil Sorgen, who was in the CVP role previously, recently accepted a new role at Microsoft as corporate vice president of the US Enterprise and Partner Group.

Promoting Schuster from within the WPG likely provides a much-needed dose of stability for partners who are adapting to the company's full-steam-ahead cloud first/mobile first direction. Schuster was a very active second-in-command to Sorgen, often acting as the voice of the group and even delivering keynotes at two past WPCs.
